Essentials of Pediatric Radiology: A Multimodality Approach provides a concise
overview of both basic and complex topics encountered by pediatric radiologists
in their daily practice. Written by leading pediatric radiologists from renowned
children's hospitals, it focuses particularly on multimodality imaging, covering
the full gamut of radiologic diagnostic techniques, including conventional radiography
and ultrasound, Doppler ultrasound, up-to-date CT and MRI techniques, and PET-CT.
Each chapter is generously illustrated with high quality images, as well as
graphs, tables, decision flowcharts and featured cases. Chapters are arranged
according to pathologies, rather than organ systems, providing the reader with
clinically-oriented information when employing ‘whole body' techniques
or analysing scans involving multiple anatomical sites. The book is complemented
by online presentations of cases as ‘unknowns', which enable readers to
test their diagnostic proficiency. A key text for pediatric radiology fellows,
radiology residents and general radiologists, this is also essential reading
for all pediatricians.
• Concise text with visually engaging format and numerous images, graphs, tables and flowcharts • Online presentation of unknown cases promotes learning and allows readers to test their diagnostic proficiency • Unique structure, organized according to pathologies, providing clinically focused information
