This volume should be of great interest to radiologists, rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, and neurologists, especially in geographical regions where musculoskeletal radiologists and rheumatologists are not adequately represented, as well as academic institutions charged with training new doctors. Readers will appreciate the basic physics behind advanced imaging techniques, as well as the various trade-offs imposed by balancing the tension between signal and noise in imaging. Readers will also learn of clinical nuances in musculoskeletal imaging and derive an understanding of the research methodology surrounding issues such as the grading of lesions. Finally, the reader should gain insight into the future directions of MRI and ultrasound.
