The format of this book is to present standard scans that cover a whole range of anatomic sites: shoulder, elbow, wrist, fi ngers, hip, knee, ankle, forefoot and toes. Each scan is accompanied by a picture showing the position of the probe, an anatomic drawing, an ultrasound image and an explanation of the ultrasound scan. At the end of each section on an anatomical site, the relevant ultrasound-guided injection procedure is explained.

This very readable and well-organized book provides a good introduction to the rapidly growing field of sonography in rheumatology. The authors have succeeded in giving a clear explanation of all the basic steps in performing rheumatology sonography. Therefore this book is a very efficient tool for self-teaching.
