Many individuals helped us make this book possible. We especially want to thank
Our families, who give us support and time for such extracurricular adventures,
Our publishing staff at F. A. Davis, especially Jennifer Pine, Senior Developmental Editor, Melissa Duffield, Acquisitions Editor, and Liz Schaeffer, Electronic Products Editor,
Our coworkers, who might have to take up some slack when we are away from our work areas, those who have contributed images of various musculoskeletal conditions, and notably Dr. Jon Jacobson, Professor of Radiology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, author of Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, who provided all of the ultrasound images,
Our colleagues at the American College of Radiology, especially Christine Waldrip, RN, MHA, and Mark Murphey, MD, and also Phillip Bairstow, PhD, MBA, of Western Australia's Diagnostic Imaging Pathways project, for facilitating the use of these organizations' research to enhance the book's content,
Our photographer Mark Konezny, ultrasonographer Rita Diamond-Ernst, model Jesse McKinnis, and Jeff Bell of Siemens Healthcare who enabled the use of their “Vitruvian Lady” MR image for our favorite front cover.
With our sincere appreciation,
