The Body MRI Series orthopedic specialists at all levels with a collection of educational and reference resource CDprovides radiologists and -ROMS, each covering a particular body segment Each CD provides a menu-driven, case-oriented approach to understanding the use of MRI as a diagnostic tool in that given area, It is often difficult to convey a practical knowledge of varied appearances of pathology by displaying single images in one plane. The authors in each case have created an interactive library of stacks of contiguous images displayed in cine format, in multiple planes. Annotated images from each sequence overlay the movies for easy reference. Stacks of normal contiguous images are provided for comparison. Each image stack is accompanied by descriptive text, including relevant clinical history, mechanisms of disease and literature references. Continuing Medical education credits associated with use of each CD are also available.
MRI of The Shoulder
MRI of The Shoulder is designed to present the normal anatomy and variations of the shoulder, followed by a comprehensive collection of pathologic cases organized by disease category. MRO of the Shoulder has become the primary diagnostic modality for evaluation of the nonspecific symptoms of shoulder pain with abduction and/or weakness. Based on their MRI appearance, a variety of disorders are diagnosed with high accuracy and appropriate treatment is initiated. Users will be able to 1. Recognize the normal rotator cuff tendons and component muscles, biceps tendon, and glenoid lagrum 2. Distinguish the different components of the rotator cuff. rotator cuff tears, different configurations of the acromion, fat planes from edema and fluid, complete rotator cuff tears from degeneration and tendinitis, normal indentation of the rotator cuff from impingement, uses of rotator cuff impingement, postoperative changes from repeat rotator cuff tear, and calcific tendinitis from bursitis 3. Identify the site and extent of rotator cuff tear, rotator cuff impingement, tendinitis, component muscle conditions, primary nd seconddary biceps tendinitis, site of calcification in calcific bursitis/tendinitis, pseudotear of gnenoid labrum, avascular necrosis, and bone injuries, and 4. Describes the mechanisms of disease for these conditions.
Content: Disease categories are organized by anatomic structure, and include: Normal Anatomy and Variations, Rotator Cuff Impingement, Rotator Cuff Tear, Post-op RTC and Fat Suppression, RTC Component Muscle Disorders, Biceps Tendon Tendinitis & Bursitis, Glenoid Labrum, and Osseous Lesions .
