Atlas of Imaging in Sports Medicine is a valuable reference text that is comprehensively illustrated with high-quality images of both common and unusual sporting injuries. This title is full of easy-to-understand information on anatomy and the biomechanics of injury that will be of use to physiotherapists, general practitioners and sports physicians. The second edition takes into account the rapid advances in technology that have occurred in the field since the original publication was released, and contains 50 per cent more information and many new images. The original focus on plain film radiography has been expanded to encompass radiology, MRIs, nuclear imaging and ultrasounds. New sub-specialisations in sports medicine and imaging are also addressed.

He was also Medical Officer for NSW Swimming, a member of the Australian Sports Medicine Federation and Committee Member of the Australasian Musculoskeletal Imaging Group. Dr John W Read MB BS (UNSW 80), FRANZCR (86), DDU (86) Dr John Read completed his post-graduate radiology training at Westmead Hospital in Sydney in 1985 and was Staff Specialist in the same department the following year. He entered private practice in 1987 at Darlinghurst X-ray, Sydney and St Vincent's Private Hospital, Sydney where he developed a special interest in high resolution ultrasound. In 1993 Dr Read established a new subspecialty ultrasound practice at the North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre, which soon merged with the pre-existing plain x-ray practice at that clinic to form Sports Imaging. Over the past 19 years he has been a leader in musculoskeletal ultrasound development and education within Australia and New Zealand. Dr Read has served as both Chairman and Member of the RANZCR Ultrasound Committee. He helped coordinate the ultrasound component of imaging services at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, and is co-author of Atlas of Imaging in Sports Medicine, first published 1998 and recently updated in 2007 as a 2nd edition international textbook that has become a popular reference used in daily clinical practice by many radiologists, sports physicians and physiotherapists around the world.
