Atlas of Pediatric Radiology

by Ammar Haouimi

The art of pediatric imaging is often challenged by the difficulties of studying small bodies that are not fully developed. In the past decade, advances in diagnostic imaging have changed the practice of pediatric care since new and evolving technologies are allowing now to obtain high resolution images of the small organ, given us a better understanding of the diseases that may affect them. The topics covered in Atlas of Pediatric Radiology represent the common and important diseases encountered in pediatrics. The material presented for each case provides a thorough and comprehensive description of the disease entity enabling the radiologist or the clinician to develop a clear concept of the entity through the different imaging modalities that are presented. Atlas of Pediatric Radiology includes 200 common cases with detailed, highly organized radiological description of the diseases. It covers all imaging modalities including conventional radiology, ultrasound, angiography, computerized tomography, MRI, and nuclear medicine. The book has a series of sections arranged to organ system (Head and Neck, Chest and Respiratory System, Gastrointestinal System, Genitourinary System, Musculoskeletal System, and Miscellaneous). This book furnishes the necessary data that radiology residents should have in their approach for board certification. The practicing pediatricians, radiologists, and pediatric surgeons will also find this book useful to enhance their knowledge in pediatric radiology. The appropriate imaging of children is a cooperative venture that requires the participation of the pediatricians, pediatric surgeons and radiologists.
