New York/Stuttgart –Challenging Cases in Musculoskeletal Imaging, recently published by Thieme, demonstrates how even difficult cases can be diagnosed by taking a systematic approach to image interpretation. Drawing upon decades of experience, Dr. Freyschmidt guides readers from case to case while solving the core problems that arise in making a diagnosis. He shows how initially challenging cases can be turned into cases that only seemed difficult at the outset.

Key Features:

  • Systematic case presentations: prior history and clinical questions, radiologic findings, pathoanatomic classification, synopsis and discussion, final diagnosis, and comments
  • Arranged by anatomic region: skull, spine, pelvis, shoulder girdle and thoracic cage, upper and lower limbs
  • More than 1,400 high-quality images from the authors case files
  • Over 150 difficult and challenging cases from skeletal radiology
