Springer, 2016. — 361 p. — ISBN 978-3-319-32365-7.Point-of-care ultrasound, or ultrasound performed and interpreted by the clinician in the clinic/offi ce or at the bedside, has been rapidly expanding in use among multiple medical specialties. Musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) has added value to clinical care both diagnostically and for accurate needle guidance of musculoskeletal procedures. Many fellowship training programs in rheumatology, as well as residency training in other specialties (e.g., physical medicine and rehabilitation, orthopedics, podiatry, emergency medicine), are now offering MSKUS education. As clinicians are increasingly incorporating MSKUS into daily clinical practice, there is a growing need for educational resources. With this in mind, it is my pleasure to present the first edition of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound in Rheumatology Review. This concise review book is designed for rheumatologists, as well as other musculoskeletal providers, learning and practicing the valuable skill of point-of care MSKUS. It is intended to serve as a practical guide for learning the fundamentals of normal sonographic anatomy and understanding how MSKUS can be incorporated into clinical care to expedite the diagnosis and management of common rheumatologic and musculoskeletal problems. Review questions are presented at the end of each chapter designed to highlight the essential concepts the reader should learn. These questions also serve as a self-evaluation and may be helpful for exam preparation.Contents. Introduction: Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Indications and Fundamentals. Basic Ultrasound Pathology.
