Hi!
The author is Ronald Grelshamer, M.D. The last time I looked, the book was mentioned on the KneeGuru website.  I have read it, it is interesting and basically talks about MRIs and how they can be manipulated to show or not show basically everything and anything.
It is worth the read, though.

Hi!
I have read the book:  it is by Ronald Grelshamer who is an os here in NYC.  The book is really quite interesting and shows how easily MRIs can be manipulated to show practically anything and everything.  Sobering to say the least.  I guess the upshot of it  is that it pays to get second and maybe even third opinions before letting someone cut into your knee.
Good luck!

I also found it an interesting read.  It has a good overview of many knee conditions, but also really makes a point about being a bit sceptical of MRI findings in the absence of supporting clinical evidence (i.e. the story and the examination)
