Rheumatoid Arthritis: A systematic approach provides readers with a simple but high quality diagnostic interpretation of clinical images of rheumatoid arthritis. The authors present a systematic approach to explaining the topics related to rheumatoid arthritis with the aid of medical images.

  • - Presents information in the ABCDEGFG methodology (A: alignment, B: bone, C: cartilage, and D: distribution, E: extra-bone, F: further examination, and G: goal)
  • - Illustrates a broad range radiographic imaging techniques such as plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT, scintigraphy, PET-CT, ultrasound, and clinical photographs.
  • - Explains topics in a simple pictorial essay format

The book is a simplified reference for medical students studying rheumatology and orthopedics as well as interns in radiology who seek to learn about the finer details of diagnostics in these specialties.
