Brower (radiology, Eastern Virginia Medical School) and Flemming (radiology education, radiology, and orthopedics, Penn State Medical Center) provide residents, family practitioners, internists, rheumatologists, and general radiologists with a reference to diagnosing arthritis. The text uses a simple approach to diagnosis focusing on the use of radiographs and the more common arthropathies and their hallmarks, excluding any deviations. It illustrates the analysis of radiographic changes in a specific joint and the common arthropathies that produce these changes, then the radiographic hallmarks of each, with chapters on rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic and reactive arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, neuropathic osteoarthropathy, diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, gout, calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate crystal deposition disease, hydroxyapatite deposition disease, miscellaneous deposition diseases, collagen vascular diseases, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, hemophilia, and mass-like arthropathies. This edition has been revised to include more images, with MRI, CT, and ultrasound images next to the plain films. A searchable full text is online. (A[c] Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
