      This book – with 55 pertinent videos – is the 3rd product in the ‘PRM arsenal’ for US. It is very much straightforward that – while dealing with a wide spectrum of musculoskeletal diseases – physicians naturally use several interventional procedures at some steps of their conservative approach. Needless to say, herein, US plays the paramount role, i.e. not only for precise guidance during those interventions but also for prompt clinical decision-making in advance. This is, by far, the reason why we have put equal emphasis on imaging and guidance in this project. Trying to include as many musculoskeletal procedures as possible – or one can imagine – we have put our “extra spin” in this interventional US textbook. A few examples would be suture injec tions, radiofrequency ablations, shockwave applications, or minor surgeries, etc.

    Potential readers – Orthopaedic specialists, rehabilitation specialists, rheumatologists, physiatrists, physiotherapists, sonographers.
