The book on “Musculoskeletal Ultrasound” provides better understanding of sonographic musculoskeletal soft tissue anatomy. Ultrasound shows us musculoskeletal anatomy from a new and unique perspective. The backbone of fibroconnective tissue consists of a collagenous framework. This matrix can be viewed as the microskeleton of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. The Chapters of the book include “Physical Principles of Ultrasound”, “Artifacts in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound”, “Sonography of Muscle”, “Sonography of Tendons”, “Sonography of Bursae” etc. A better understanding of the principles of musculoskeletal ultrasound has led to anisotropic imaging. Ultrasound shows fluid because of the uniformity of its acoustic impedance. The capability of ultrasound to demonstrate fluid with great sensitivity and specificity proves extremely useful in the diagnosis of osteoarticular diseases. New chapters have been added to this edition of the book: one on post-surgical imaging and one on the developing role of musculoskeletal ultrasound in telemedicine. This third edition, intended as an electronic book, combines text, static and dynamic ultrasound images, line drawings, 3-D animations, and variable combinations of audio and video. This third edition contains more information on ultrasound anatomy, indications for musculoskeletal ultrasound examinations, and information on pathology and ultrasound signs of disease. The recent rapid growth of this technique and evidence of an ever-increasing number of followers prove that musculoskeletal ultrasound represents an important tool in the hands of the contemporary musculoskeletal practitioner.
