Dr. Bonnick describes the various densitometry techniques currently in use and how to intelligently select among them in a wide variety of clinical circumstances. She also shows how to interpret the computer-generated data and how to recognize and avoid interpetation pitfalls from the effects of artifacts and structural changes. Physicians performing densitometry will learn the key elements to include in a densitometry report to referring doctors, and how to gain mastery of the sophisticated quality control procedures necessary for the successful performance of bone densitometry. Offering the most comprehensive but easily readable explanation of diagnostic densitometry for the primary care physician and technologist, Bone Densitometry in Clinical Practice is destined to become the essential guide for medical personnel working with densitometry. Its numerous illustrations, practical examples, and tables will prove invaluable to physicians, whether new to the field or considerably experienced in the everyday practice of densitometry."@en ;
