Description

Emphasizing differential diagnosis, this text provides the diagnostic pathologist with guidance on the correct interpretation of histopathological specimens in orthopaedic surgical pathology. The first section of the book explains methods of diagnosis, including imaging and cytogenetics. These methods are integrated into the main body of the text to illustrate and describe the tumours and tumour-like lesions affecting bone with the use of both micrographs and radiographic images. A separate section then covers tumours and tumour-like lesions of the joints. The final section provides the pathologist with concise accounts of the appropriate treatments of the lesions diagnosed.
