This book is a unique, authoritative, clinically oriented text on all aspects of pediatric body MRI of congenital and acquired disorders. There is currently no book that focuses on pediatric body MRI, so this occupies the sole ground for all readers interested in the topic. The text is divided into 18 individual chapters. Each chapter is then organized to comprehensively cover each step leading to and following the MRI, including: MRI techniques, embryology and anatomy, normal development and anatomic variants, clinical presentation, imaging findings with MRI focus, differential diagnosis and pitfalls, management / treatment. Written by international pediatric radiology experts, this is an ideal guide for attending radiologists, residents, and fellows, as well as clinicians in other specialties who are interested in pediatric body MRI.
