Modern ultrasound has now acquired a very important role in the spectrum of imaging modalities available for the study of the musculoskeletal system. This technique has become an indispensable tool in the clinical management of sports injuries, degenerative and traumatic lesions of the articulations and periarticular soft tissues, as well as – in certain circumstances – clinical management of the bones. 

S.Bianchi and C. Martinoli are internationally renowned leaders in their field who have acquired an exceptional expertise. This book comprehensively covers the extensive and varied spectrum of musculoskeletal diseases, in the management of which ultrasound can make an important, if not essential, contribution to better clinical diagnosis and better guidance of therapy.

What Others Think About the NextLevel CME™ Ultrasound
of the Musculoskeletal System ?


The book is geared towards all specialities interested in musculoskeletal ultrasound, including orthopaedics surgeons, sports physicians, rheumatologists and of course radiologists. It would be just as useful to a novice as an experienced practitioner. … I found this book extremely useful with many little tips for improving my own skills. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is enthusiastic about musculoskeletal ultrasound.”

Shah Khan, British Journal of Hospital Medicine

This is the best US book that I have found. Not only do the authors carefully describe the normal and pathologic US anatomy as visualized on scans but they provide a thorough review of anatomy. I think the anatomical descriptions, illustrations, correlations with CT and MRI are better than what I see in most anatomy texts. A must have if you do a lot of clinical US of MSK system.

Karl Fields

This book will serve as a terrific reading-room reference… to learn how to apply the cross-sectional modality of US to the musculoskeletal system. Best of all, it is fascinating, readable, and extremely well illustrated… Each chapter is packed with pearls and is presented with clarity. … The same level of clarity, quality, readability, and comprehensiveness carries through every topic in every chapter. … It has the potential to be both an invaluable tutorial and a constantly used resource for subspecialist musculoskeletal radiologists."

Michael A. Bruno, Radiology
