Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a thorough review of disease processes in the gastrointestinal tract in neonates and children and their ultrasound findings. . General radiologists or pediatric radiologists are the target audience. The book has excellent ultrasound images of both routine and unusual cases of gastrointestinal tract pathology. . There are also excellent diagrams and tables and good quality pathology and intraoperative images. This high quality book offers an in-depth look at ultrasound of the gastrointestinal tract in children, detail that cannot be found elsewhere." (Julie Sossaman, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)"This is an extremely impressive book. It is totally meticulous in its quality, detail and depth, with copious references. The text is annotated in paragraphs and points, useful for a reference text. I suspect it will appeal to radiologists with an interest in paediatrics . . It could be useful as a bench book in a general department, and likely more so in a teaching unit." (Anne Wake, RAD Magazine, May, 2009)"The book is unique as it covers all important topics of the gastrointestinal tract and the diagnostic use of ultrasound. . the book can be recommended to all general and pediatric radiologists involved in ultrasound with a special focus on the evaluation of the gastrointestinal tract. It is an excellent tool for day-to-day use." (A. K. Dixon and Thomas Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 19, 2009)
