Geared toward rheumatologists, this book examines the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of bone loss in patients with inflammatory diseases. Drs. Maricic and Gluck—along with contributors from bone biology, diagnosis, imaging, biomarkers, and treatment—have developed a comprehensive, practical text on this specific aspect of rheumatology.
Bone Disease in Rheumatology provides cutting-edge information on the pathophysiology of systemic and focal bone loss (erosions) in inflammatory disorders, the tools used to assess and measure bone loss, and the medications used in management of bone loss associated with rheumatic diseases. The book also discusses common and uncommon metabolic bone disorders, emphasizing state-of-the-art management techniques.
