This case-based atlas presents images depicting the findings typically observed when imaging a variety of common and uncommon diseases in the pediatric age group. The cases are organized according to anatomic region, covering disorders of the brain, spinal cord, head and neck, chest, cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal system, genitourinary system, and musculoskeletal system. Cases are presented in a form resembling teaching files, and the images are accompanied by concise informative text. The goal is to provide a diagnostic reference suitable for use in daily routine by both practicing radiologists and radiology residents or fellows. The atlas will also serve as a teaching aide and a study resource, and will offer pediatricians and surgeons guidance on the clinical applications of pediatric imaging.

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 an outstanding free access website of sample cases containing questions and answers that enable readers to test their diagnostic proficiency - see http://essentials-of-pediatric-radiology.com. A key text for pediatric radiology fellows, radiology residents and general radiologists, this is also essential reading for all pediatricians.

As outlined by Dr. V. Donoghue in her preface, recent advances in the therapeutic manage ment of neonates with low gestational age have resulted in a significantly high er survival rate and better outcome for these newborns. Lung and heart malformations or acquired diseases represent a major part of the life threatening conditions in this group of critically ill patients, and radiological imaging is one of the main tools to define the appropriate therapeutic approach. This book not only provides an excellent update on the embryological and anatomical aspects of neonatal ehest conditions but also offers a unique and comprehensive overview of our current knowledge and of recent progress in imaging techniques of the neonatal ehest. Dr. Donoghue has been successful in engaging a number of outstandingly qualified international experts to contribute to this work, and I would like to congratulate her on the excellent coordination and editing of this book. I am confident that this outstanding volume will meet with great interest not only from general as well as specialised paediatric radiologists but also from neonatologists and paediatricians. I hope it will enjoy the same success as many previous volumes in this senes. Leuven ALBERT 1. BAERT Preface In the past two deeades there have been extraordinary advanees in the treatment of eritically ill neonates, resulting in improvements in their survival and a signifieant deerease in morbid ity.

Rapid advances are taking place in the field of imaging. This results in the need for re-evaluating and redefining the role of a modality in different clinical scenarios. Coupled to this, particularly in paediatric radiology is the need for ensuring patient safety. The industry has made significant attempts to minimize radiation exposures in imaging and this is pre-requisite that cannot be over-emphasized in children. Paediatric radiology is already a well-established subspecialty in the West, but in the developing world due to the paucity of trained radiologists in proportion to our population, every practicing radiologist needs to be aware of the special needs and disease entities in children. The third edition of the book has been designed to include current recommendations, guidelines and existing knowledge on the subject. The content of all chapters has been updated, while some have been significantly restructured. New chapters have also been added. It is our earnest hope that our readers will find this text informative and that it will aid in their learning process and daily practice.
