FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSCULOSKELETAL ULTRASOUND packs a big punch for such a compact book. It teaches the resident, clinician and even medical student, how to perform and read musculoskeletal ultrasounds, while highlighting the basic anatomy needed to perform and interpret ultrasounds and the salient points needed to make diagnosis. Key anatomy, concepts, diseases and even controversies are highlighted, rather than presenting a lengthy tome covering the A to Z's of musculoskeletal ultrasound.

"Because Jacobson is the sole author of the book, the writing style is consistent and easy to read...In the preface, Jacobson states that his goal is 'to teach the fundamentals of musculoskeletal ultrasound in a concise and efficient manner.' He clearly achieved his objective. This book will appeal to both musculoskeletal and general radiologists and should be part of any radiology library." - AJR
