Essential Musculoskeletal MRI: A Primer for the Clinician
Essential Musculoskeletal MRI is a clinically based manual written by experts in both musculoskeletal MRI and musculoskeletal medicine.
It explains when and why patients should be referred for this type of imaging and is an essential purchase for any student or clinician
wishing to hone their MRI reading skills and to interpret their findings in conjunction with patient symptoms. The book assumes no
previous knowledge of diagnostic imaging and covers the appearance of normal anatomy under MRI, as well as the radiological features
of the most commonly encountered regional pathologies, with emphasis on those with musculoskeletal relevance.
The content is regionally organised, rather than driven by pathology, and the focus is clearly on clinical application.
Worked clinical examples develop diagnostic thinking and the numerous images help clinicians to recognise patterns.

Essential Physics for Manual Medicine
All of the Physics you need - and none of the physics you don't! If you're studying manual medicine, then at last there is a textbook
that covers the related physical concepts written with you in mind. Clinicians in general and manual therapists in particular have
a need to understand certain, specific aspects of physics to an advanced level; however, many lack prior education in this area, with
chemistry and biology 'A' levels being emphasized in terms of entrance requirements. Most textbooks aimed at this field concentrate
exclusively on the physics underpinning biomechanics, but the level at which these books are pitched is often too high to allow
understanding by students who have an inadequate background in the subject. This book acts, in part, as a primer to address this deficit.
Students are also required to understand the basic physics underpinning physiology, biochemistry, radiography and therapeutics. This
textbook will be a guide to these specialist areas of knowledge. This text will cover biophysics as a core subject to guide the potential
clinician from total ignorance to complete mastery in the areas of physics pertinent to manual medicine and its related disciplines.
Uniquely, the book has multiple entrance points with existing knowledge assessments to determine useage of specific chapters and topics
- a must for manual therapy students and a useful addition to the library of practitioners who never felt they got to grips with the
scientific principles underpinning clinical practice.
