This book is a comprehensive compendium of paediatric conditions, and covers clinical and diagnostic imaging for most diseases affecting neonates and children. Detailed descriptions of radiological signs aim to aid the diagnosis and identification of clinical symptoms.
The book contains a large number of images taken from a collection of current and archival photos obtained from three generations of paediatric surgeons and radiologists which further illustrate the points made in the text. This book will act as a reference manual for any person in training who has to care for neonates and children in a hospital setting.
