The purpose is to provide the essential knowledge of musculoskeletal imaging to residents while simultaneously helping them prepare for the CORE exam. This is accomplished through learning objectives presented at the beginning of each chapter, numerous high-quality teaching illustrations, many tables, and self assessment both at the end of each chapter and the end of the book. The two main important features of this book are the high-quality illustrations and the self-assessment/learning points in each chapter. The learning points help keep readers on track and the images demonstrate multiple examples with succinct captions and sufficient detail while also providing a quick reference for those wanting a refresher. The final self assessment is a thorough 100-question exam with even more examples to help solidify important teaching points. The book also has relevant and updated references on all of the topics. Overall, this book accomplishes its goals. It provides a sound foundation in musculoskeletal imaging with a wide array of illustrations that help drive home points that are essential to the discipline. It is an extremely useful book for those just starting out a rotation centered on musculoskeletal imaging and those preparing for the CORE exam.”
