This textbook appears to be addressed to mainly junior residents in Radiology, but it should be emphasized that even more radiologists would find in it practical information leading to the proper examination of a problematic knee. Numerous and demonstrative illustrations enrich the text, and Thieme should be complimented for their quality. The pearls to be found along the margins on the disease discussed will be appreciated, as well as the numerous text boxes, which provide rapid condensed information. Those who enjoyed reading Imaging Strategies of the Shoulder, by the same author and publisher, a book that this reviewer highly recommends, will definitely appreciate this new textbook.--Clinical Imaging
