This book is part of the LWW India publishing program. This program is developed for the Indian market working with Indian authors who are the foremost experts in their respective fields. Our Indian authors do research and teach at the most respected Indian medical schools and academic hospitals. Radiographic examination of musculoskeletal problems is an extremely crucial component of orthopaedic practice. Proper positioning of the patient is necessary to obtain the best radiographic view. However, quite often, the relevant positioning details elude the memory of a busy orthopaedecian and a good opportunity to clinch a diagnosis gets lost. This book is oriented towards the orthopaedic surgeon's plain radiographic requirements and provides a ready solution that may be used by both the radiologist and the orthopaedician. Each view described has been carefully evaluated and a brief discussion of its realistic clinical usefulness, advantages and disadvantages has been provided. This makes the book more valuable than just a positioning manual. Included are sketches of fracture patterns as additional information to help decision making in trauma settings. The Supplement section in numerous chapters provides ancillary information to read the radiographs and modify the treatment. Relevant suggestions are provided for appropriate positioning of the C-arm image intensifier that is now an integral part of an orthopaedic surgeon&rsquos work. A crisp, easy-to-refer style has been used throughout the book. All these features make this book an excellent ready reference for Orthopaedicians, radiologists as well as radiographers.
