Your ultimate guide to the basics of musculoskeletal medicine

50+ essential topics

RealWorld Orthopaedics includes more than 50 chapters covering the most frequent and important musculoskeletal diagnoses, including fractures, dislocations, and degenerative diseases. Topics are divided into sections discussing basic mechanisms of injury, standard diagnostic criteria and classifications, differential diagnosis as well as management.

Beautiful anatomy plates

Topics are illustrated using original illustrations and photographs as well as beautiful anatomy plates from Gray's Anatomy.

150+ real-world cases

Browse through more than 150 cases selected for their real-world representativeness and high pedagogical value. All cases include information regarding the patient and the mechanism of injury, relevant imaging and links to the chapters discussing the main diagnosis.

High-resolution radiographs

Experience the joy of manipulating high-resolution imagery right on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Access all relevant series (e.g. anteroposterior, lateral, oblique) and zoom in and out using pinch gestures. Especially optimized for the new Retina display, radiographs have never looked so good!

Detailed radiologic interpretation

Each radiograph is accompanied by a detailed radiologic interpretation. More than a simple radiologist report, these interpretations thoroughly explain the what and why of each finding and feature tips and tricks helping you get better and better at reading x-rays.

Highlighted findings

Because an image is worth a thousand words, each finding is not only described, but also drawn directly on the radiographs. These annotations are color-coded, so that up to 10 findings can be shown concurrently on the same study. Annotations can be individually toggled on and off.

Detailed measurement procedures

Step-by-step instructions teach you how to measure complex angles or estimate displacement.

Postoperative controls

Access postoperative control radiographs to understand how a particular condition was managed. Get your eyes used to the various kinds of prosthesis and fixators and learn to distinguish them just from the x-ray.

Quiz mode

Test your knowledge with the quiz mode, which will randomly display a case (radiograph and patient story) and let you make the diagnosis. Check your answer by revealing the true diagnoses and reading the full report.

Optimized for differential diagnosis

Access cases directly either by diagnosis (e.g. Galeazzi fracture, rhumatoid artitis) or by actual radiological finding (e.g. linear hypodensity, plate and screws, irregular joint surface).

Buy once, run everywhere

RealWorld Orthopaedics is a universal app, meaning it has been optimized to look great on both your iPad and your iPhone or iPod Touch. Buy it once and use it on all of your devices1, no separate purchase required for the iPad and iPhone versions!
