Bonakdarpour: Diagnostic Imaging and Pathology of Musculoskeletal Diseases
By Akbar Bonakdarpour, William R Reinus and Jasvir S Khurana
2008 (1st ed), 1000 pages, $185 list
With the advent of new technologies, the field of musculoskeletal radiology has grown to include not only diseases that affect the skeleton, but also those that affect muscles, ligaments, tendons and also the cartilaginous structures within joints. Diagnostic Imaging of Musculoskeletal Diseases: A Systematic Approach is a useful and worthy teaching text that is at once readable by the radiology resident rotating through the musculoskeletal radiology and thorough enough to be used by the practicing radiologist. Written by authors who are well established in the field of musculoskeletal radiology and pathology, this volume provides readers with a practical and systematic approach to think about diagnosis of pathologic conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, thus making the material easier to learn and synthesize. Chapters are organized by major categories of disease: trauma, infection, tumors and tumor-like conditions, metabolic diseases, dysplastic diseases and arthritis. Additional chapters examine basic interventional techniques that apply to musculoskeletal imaging and in recognition of the importance of orthopedic procedures, information is included on the use, imaging, appearance, and pathology affecting prostheses and fixation devices. Diagnostic Imaging of Musculoskeletal Diseases: A Systematic Approach is an exceptionally important new text that contains information essential to the practice of modern radiology
Cooper: Muscle Biopsy
By Carsten Cooper
2015, 166 pages, $90 list
The increased knowledge of the genetic basis of a broad range of muscle diseases has led to a dramatic alteration in the investigation of muscle diseases. Muscle biopsy has become a strong instrument not just to provide diagnosis, but to make tissue accessible for genetic studies, and to elementary scientists for biomedical research, as well as to examine mitochondrial dysfunction and the mitochondrial DNA integrity in oxidation. Precise interpretation of muscle biopsy to catch cell dysfunction/damage/death or absence/abnormality of a protein or genetic defect by the sophisticated technologies is crucial to direct the diagnosis of different muscle disorders. This book discusses the process and interpretation of muscle biopsy, its applications in the culture of myotubes and membrane transport studies. It discusses the developments in the elementary techniques of muscle biopsy for a neuroscientist, as well as, explores phosphorylation in different disorders like obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and peripheral vascular disease, with comprehensive descriptions on methodology.
Deyrup: Practical Orthopedic Pathology: A Diagnostic Approach
By Andrea T. Deyrup M.D., Ph.D. and Gene P. Siegal M.D., Ph.D.
2015, 400 pages, $289 list
Apply a systematic pattern recognition approach to achieve more accurate diagnoses of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Andrea Deyrup, MD, PhD and Gene P. Siegal, MD, PhD use a practical, pattern-based organization that helps you efficiently and confidently evaluate even the most challenging histologic specimens.
Dubowitz: Muscle Biopsy: A Practical Approach
By Victor Dubowitz
2013 (4th ed), 592 pages, $259 list
Muscle Biopsy: A Practical Approach gives you all of the unparalleled guidance necessary to effectively interpret and diagnose muscle biopsy specimens for the full range of diseases in both adults and children. Authored by Dr. Victor Dubowitz, an internationally renowned figure in the field of muscle disease, this medical reference book takes an integrated approach to diagnosis and assessment of muscle biopsies that includes clinical, genetic, biochemical, and pathological features. It's the comprehensive, up-to-date coverage you need to evaluate muscle disorders with confidence.
Goebel: Muscle Disease: Pathology and Genetics
By Hans Goebel
2013 (2nd ed), 432 pages, $310 list
This book clarifies the pathology and genetics of muscle disease for pathologists, clinicians, geneticists and researchers to aid in the diagnosis and management of patients. Organized around the 'motor unit' concept, this book presents the latest understanding of muscle disease, and how this can help identify new treatments.
Kilpatrick: Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Surgical Pathology
By Scott Kilpatrick
2003 (1st ed), 416 pages, $65 list
Here's a new, practical, "bench" guide for the diagnosis of neoplastic and non-neoplastic bone, muscle, and soft-tissue disorders. The author used histologic/cytologic approaches coupled with fine needle aspiration biopsy and clinicoradiologic correlations to create a unique, one-stop reference.
Layfield: Musculoskeletal Cytohistology
By Lester Layfield
2012 (1st ed), 326 pages, $175 list
Each volume in this richly illustrated series, sponsored by the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology, provides an organ-based approach to the cytological and histological diagnosis of small tissue samples. Benign, pre-malignant and malignant entities are presented in a well-organized and standardized format, with high-resolution color photomicrographs, tables, tabulated specific morphologic criteria and appropriate ancillary testing algorithms. Example vignettes allow the reader to assimilate the diagnostic principles in a case-based format. This volume describes the cytologic, small core biopsy, immunohistochemical and molecular diagnostic features of musculoskeletal lesions. It provides the cytopathologist and histopathologist with a comprehensive survey of diagnostic approaches and diagnostic features for benign and malignant lesions. Each chapter contains a detailed summary of differential diagnostic features, supported by high-quality images and case studies. With over 500 printed photomicrographs and a CD-ROM offering all images in a downloadable format, this is an important resource for practising pathologists and residents in pathology.
