Professor of Radiology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, J. Bruce Kneeland, MD increases the depth of understanding of one of the most common clinical complaints: shoulder pain. He summarizes the pathology involving the rotator cuff, and explains the disorders that arise primarily from impingement. He further goes on to discuss the pros and cons of various diagnostic imaging modalities to detect calcifications, bony abnormalities, and for evaluation of full- and partial-thickness tears to aid in crafting appropriate treatments. Well populated with high quality images to illustrate Dr. Kneeland’s recommendations, this little book will appeal to a wide audience wishing to broaden their musculoskeletal chops.
