Thieme Medical Publishers


608 pages




Schmitt (radiology, Hospital for Cardiovascular Diseases, Bad Neustadt an der Saale, Germany) and Lanz (hand surgery, Perlach Hospital, Munich, Germany) present a resource text designed to help hand surgeons, orthopedists, and rheumatologists understand the many possible interpretations of modern imaging and to provide radiologists with clinical information for the correct implementation and interpretation of resulting images. The text is a revised translation of the German publication, Bildgebende Diagnostik der Hand (2004, Georg Thieme Verlag, Stuttgart). Featuring contributions from 21 German and Austrian specialists, the book is organized into sections covering the different examining methods; the anatomical and functional foundations of hand imaging, including variants and malformations; all of the important disease entities of the hand; and differential diagnostic tables for diseases of the hand. Illustrated throughout with 1,000-plus b&w figures, tables, and diagrams. Oversize: 8.5x12".
