Product information Radiographic Atlas of Skeletal Maturation

Nearly 2,300 images provide the reference standard for normal skeletal maturation at every developmental stage

When dealing with the maturing skeleton and its many complex growth alterations, physicians are constantly faced with the question: "Is this image normal?" The Radiographic Atlas of Skeletal Maturation succinctly answers that question by providing a comprehensive set of male and female reference images for every age and body part. This allows physicians to quickly hone in on "normal" ranges for the specific case they are reviewing--particularly useful when called upon to read a pediatric skeletal radiograph in the emergency room or while on call.

Special Features:

  • Access to nearly 2,300 high-quality images that provide instant reference to "normal" views of the skeleton at every developmental milestone-available in both the text and accompanying DVD
  • Multiple projections at every age, sex, and body part combination so that the user can match the reference points in the book to the case at hand and arrive at a solid clinical interpretation
  • Practical text layout organized by gender and body part that provides quick access to images of normal development at any given age
  • A software virtual "skeletal survey" demonstrates images of younger and older individuals and crystallizes the subtle variations in growth patterns
  • Powerful software package with advanced image enhancement tools allows optimization of atlas image details for greater clarity. Compatible with numerous image formats (including DICOM) allowing viewing and editing of outside images
  • Convenient growth charts included in the book and DVD

This unique resource, with its vast collection of print and DVD images of normal progressive skeletal development, gives physicians the full range of comparative information they need to interpret pediatric skeletal radiographs in any clinical setting. It is th

Frequently asked questions

What is an e-book?
An e-book is the electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file.
The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.

What formats are there and how do they differ?
Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats.
The PDF format corresponds 1:1 to the printed book and has a fixed page layout. It is therefore ideal for computers, tablets and larger e-readers.
E-books in EPUB format adapt dynamically to the display size of the reading device. It is therefore particularly suitable for smaller devices such as smartphones and small-format tablets and e-readers.

Do I need a special program to open the e-book?
Free reading programs for e-books are available for all operating systems and reading devices: for PDFs, for example, Adobe Acrobat Reader, for EPUBs, for example, Adobe Digital Editions.

Do I have to be online to read e-books?

Am I allowed to lend or sell e-books?

Am I allowed to exchange or return the e-book?
