This book concentrates on the utilization of plain film radiography (versus the more expensive modalities of CT or MRI) for the diagnosis of athletic injuries. Following a brief introduction to radiologic principles and commonly seen conditions, chapters organized by anatomical area indicate normal radiographic anatomy followed by a series of images illustrating various injuries and their diagnoses. Coverage includes the full range of soft tissue, bone, and joint injuries affecting the hand and upper extremity, leg and lower extremity, head and neck, spine, and thorax.
