From the first edition to the 8th edition, Carestream Health India’s eRadiograph has come a long way. After covering various intricate subjects in its previous editions, the recently released 8th edition of this medical primer focuses on yet another important topic – musculoskeletal infections and the challenges involved in the imaging of these. This edition, also discusses the recent changes in imaging trends like metal artefact reduction sequences in MRI and role of diffusion tensor imaging in peripheral imaging.
Titled ‘Imaging of Musculoskeletal Infections’, the content for this edition is developed by Dr. Deepak Patkar, Head Department of Imaging, Nanavati Superspecility Hospital; Chairman, Indian College of Radiology and Imaging; Musculoskeletal Imaging Sub-speciality Head, IRIA. In this edition, various radiological modalities which are appropriate for different musculoskeletal infections are discussed in detail. Owing to the complexity of the subject, the entire edition is divided into six distinct chapters, for easy understanding. Each of these chapters provide latest information on challenges involved in the imaging of a different musculoskeletal infection and the suitable radiological modality for the same, with the help of relevant examples and images. Collectively, these chapters cover key imaging features of all the radiological modalities – from plain radiograph to MRI and Nuclear imaging, highlighting the role of each of these modalities in case of various aspects of musculoskeletal infections.
Mr Nilesh Sanap, Marketing Manager, Carestream Health India says, “We are committed to provide latest information, by an expert, on a new and challenging topic in each edition of the eRadiograph.
