Second Edition Foot and Ankle Radiology PDF is still aimed at the same things it was aimed at in the first edition: to show the scope of diagnostic imaging that is relevant to podiatric medicine, to teach the student how to use podiatric radiography and radiographic interpretation in practice, and to give the podiatric practitioner a solid base of knowledge from which to make good decisions.

I am pleased that the book’s first edition of Foot and Ankle Radiology PDF was helpful to people who used it. I’m also fortunate to have written and edited this second edition of the book. Much time was spent editing the entire material to ensure that it flowed consistently throughout. Any images in the first edition that didn’t show what was being discussed were changed with new ones. Many people said that some chapters in the first edition were hard to read.

It’s hoped that the reader will find that this edition has fixed chiefly that. In general, the six sections are the same. The Special Imaging Procedures section has been moved to the end of the book because the book’s focus is on radiology. Principles of Radiographic Interpretation have also been moved from the section on Radiographic Anatomy to Bone and Joint Abnormalities.

Digital radiography, the diabetic foot, musculoskeletal ultrasound, and postoperative evaluation and complications have all been added to the book, which shows how important they are to podiatric imaging. Section 1, Radiography, has been changed a lot and now has a new chapter. The chapter on radiologic physics, radiation biology, and radiation safety has been changed. Several chapters from the first edition are combined in the second edition: Radiography Equipment and Accessories, Exposure Techniques and Special Situations, and the film’s quality.

With the rise of digital radiography, Chapter 3 is a whole chapter about this. Chapter 4: Positioning techniques haven’t changed much. However, new terminology has been used to talk about recent changes to two primary radiographic positioning textbooks (Merrill’s Atlas and Bontrager). No one had to do a lot of work on Section 2, Radiographic Anatomy, because little has changed in this part of the book of Foot and Ankle Radiology PDF. Even so, the chapter on “Normal Variants and Anomalies” has been revised and expanded.

New illustrations have also been added to make the text even better. It has also been changed in Chapter 8, Developmental Variants. The main points have been more clearly explained in Section 3, the Systematic Approach to Bone and Joint Abnormalities. It has also been added to Chapter 9, “Principles of Radiographic Interpretation,” to add digital imaging tools. You can find the Ottawa ankle rules in Chapter 10, “View Selection for the Radiographic Study.” The American College of Radiology’s guidelines for musculoskeletal imaging is also referenced in the new version of the chapter. Chapter 11, “Systematic Evaluation of Bone and Joint Abnormalities,” has been updated and expanded to show better the concepts it talks about.

Radiology report: This is a new topic and comes with a guide. Ken Whitney and Phil Bresnahan, who worked with me at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, have changed Section 4, Positional and Developmental Abnormalities. No significant changes were made to Chapter 12, Principles of Biomechanical Radiographic Analysis of the Foot. In Chapter 13, “Foot Segmental Relationships and Bone Morphology,” Ken’s father, Alan Whitney, added a few illustrations. Alan Whitney was a teacher of ours.

Existing illustrations have been improved to help people better understand what they’re talking about. In the second edition, the chapter on congenital and developmental pediatric abnormalities has been updated and expanded to include the topic pes cavus, which was accidentally left out of the first edition by mistake. Section 5, Bone and Joint Disorders, has been more updated and added to. When I moved to Western University of Health Sciences College of Podiatric Medicine, a friend named Diane Koshimune reworked and edited Chapter 15, Fractures and Related Conditions: Fundamentals, which I now teach.

Chapter 16, Classification of Fractures and Dislocations, has been entirely rewritten by Jonathan Labovitz, Francis Chan, and Aksone Nouvong, who work at WesternU. They write about the reliability of these classification systems and how well they can predict what will happen. Doctor Cristina Marchis-Crisan made significant changes and additions to three chapters: Chapter 17, Osteonecrosis and Osteochondrosis, Chapter 19, Joint Disease, and Chapter 21, Metabolic Disease, Nutritional Disorders, and Skeletal Dysplasias, to name a few.

The medical description of disease processes has been included, and the use of special imaging studies and how they work. Many tables and images have been added to help people understand what they are reading. It has also changed how joint disorders are categorized and differentiated from each other. Chapter 18, Bone Infection, has been updated to include more ways to classify infections and new imaging tests. My colleague at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, Larry Oshe, has also rewritten Chapter 20, Tumors and Tumorlike Lesions, adding descriptions of more lesions. This isn’t the only thing he did.

There are two new chapters added to Section 5 now. Chapter 22: The Diabetic Foot needed its own chapter because it has become a significant public health problem in Western and the new worlds. Tony Short, a friend from “down under,” talks about the following: choosing the correct imaging study, general considerations, Charcot neuropathic osteoarthropathy, infection, and peripheral arterial disease. Chapter 23, “Postoperative Evaluation and Complications,” talks about a subject that was not covered in the book’s first edition pdf Foot and Ankle Radiology. Former student Andy Meyer, who now works in academia, was asked to write a guide for radiologists about this subject.

I asked him to write a chapter for this edition. Thank goodness he agreed! Dr. Meyr talks about the evaluation of deformity correction, the assessment of bone healing, and the verification of hardware. Since the first edition, much has changed in diagnostic imaging. Section 6, Special Imaging Procedures, has been updated and expanded to include these changes and new technologies. It now has an area on cell and molecular imaging, including positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).

Spiral or helical CT and multidetector CT have been added to computed tomography (CT). MRI and ultrasound sections have been widened to include basic principles and an overview of how these images are made. In Chapter 25, “Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Foot and Ankle Pathology,” the text has been changed, and many pictures of the foot and ankle pathology have been added. Mark Schweitzer was a Fellow in Musculoskeletal Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a long time ago. I first met him when he worked there. He has since written a lot about MRIs of the foot and ankle.

And, because ultrasound has recently become the “podiatrist’s stethoscope,”, especially in sports medicine, Chapter 26, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, is all about getting images of anatomic structures and figuring out what’s going on with them. Al Armstrong, a friend of mine from Barry University’s School of Podiatric Medicine, has written a detailed manual with pictures.
