Kinematic MRI of the Joints: Functional Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Clinical Applications


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Kinematic MRI refers to imaging a joint through a range of motion to examine the interactions between the soft tissue and osseous anatomy that comprise the joint. Kinematic MRI techniques were developed because various pathologic conditions are dependent on the specific position of the joint or in response to loading or stress. Importantly, static-view MRI examinations often miss abnormal findings because the joint is not assessed through a range of motion. Accordingly, the functional information obtained using kinematic MRI frequently serves to identify the underlying abnormality or to supplement the information acquired with standard MR imaging techniques.

Kinematic MRI of the Joints is the first textbook on this important, emerging clinical MRI application. For each joint, it presents pertinent functional anatomy, kinesiology, and clinical information; describes the kinematic MRI protocol and technique; explains the normal kinematics; and provides a thorough presentation of the pathokinematics. Multiple case examples illustrate the usefulness of kinematic MRI of the joints for diagnosis or elucidation of pathologic conditions.

Each section of this book is co-authored by an leading musculoskeletal radiologist orthopedic surgeon as well as by an academic-based physical therapist/biomechanist.

Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists, 2e


Features: Example Bullet Point 1, Example Bullet Point 2
By (author): Thomas W. Myers

Understanding the role of fascia in healthy movement and postural distortion is of vital importance to bodyworkers and movement therapists. Anatomy Trains: Myofascial Meridians for Manual and Movement Therapists presents a unique ‘whole systems’ view of myofascial/locomotor anatomy in which the bodywide connections among the muscles within the fascial net are described in detail for the first time. Using the metaphor of railway or train lines, Myers explains how patterns of strain communicate through the myofascial ‘webbing’, contributing to postural compensation and movement stability. Written in a style that makes it easy to understand and apply, Anatomy Trains provides an accessible and comprehensive explanation of the anatomy and function of the myofascial system in the body. The DVD ROM in the back of the book contains video of techniques, Anatomy Trains-based dissections and computer animations of the myofascial meridian lines.

includes full-colour illustrations of 11 myofascial meridians and the rules for discovering other meridians
• uses numerous full colour charts and drawings to detail the muscular and fascial structures involved in the meridians
• presents information on assessment of structural and movement patterns and gives related application to manual therapy and movement education
• provides a selection of techniques from the library of structural integration
• includes an introduction to the fascial system as a whole, with points-of-view and the latest research findings on the fascial system’s responses
• offers a fun approach to learning essential structural anatomy, comparing the connective tissue system to a railway network
• video material on the accompanying DVD ROM to visually present the anatomy as described in the book.

Full colour throughout
• New design and layout
• 140 New full colour figures including dissection photographs and client photos
• DVD ROM in back of book
• A new appendices on ‘Structural integration’ and ‘Myofascial meridians and oriental medicine’

The Anatomy of Hope: How People Prevail in the Face of Illness


By (author): Jerome Groopman

Why do some people find and sustain hope during difficult circumstances, while others do not? What can we learn from those who do, and how is their example applicable to our own lives? The Anatomy of Hope is a journey of inspiring discovery, spanning some thirty years of Dr. Jerome Groopman’s practice, during which he encountered many extraordinary people and sought to answer these questions.

This profound exploration begins when Groopman was a medical student, ignorant of the vital role of hope in patients’ lives–and it culminates in his remarkable quest to delineate a biology of hope. With appreciation for the human elements and the science, Groopman explains how to distinguish true hope from false hope–and how to gain an honest understanding of the reach and limits of this essential emotion.
