Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is based on the extensive experience of the team from the University of Göttingen in the diagnosis and treatment of paediatric urological disorders. . this is a good, well-documented book that might be helpful for any practitioner involved in the management of urological disorders in childhood!" (A. Ugrinksa, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 31 (4), April, 2004)"This book represents a multidisciplinary approach to the imaging and clinical management of pediatric urological disorders. . illustrations provide a clear, informative, and clinically relevant addition for readers . . The quality of the paper, illustrations, figures and tables is good. . Overall, the book does fulfill the purpose of providing a multidisciplinary approach . . Those readers most likely to benefit from this book include radiologists and nuclear medicine specialists who encounter pediatric patients . ." (Patricia Lowry, Radiology, September, 2004)"Type of Book: General review of pediatric urologic entities and imaging evaluation of these conditions. . The chapters list extensive references. The authors offer a concise, but thorough review of related embryology. The variety of cases discussed is extensive. The authors provide strong clinical correlation with discussion of therapy including specific surgical procedures and laser lithotripsy. . Overall grade: Excellent." (A. Price, Pediatric Radiology, Vol. 34 (2), 2004)"Although the title of this text suggests that it may be written primarily for paediatric radiologists, in fact it contains much material that would be equally useful to paediatricians (especially nephrologists), paediatric urologists and their trainees. . This book would be a delight for both the trainee and established specialist (either clinical or imaging) to read. Indeed, the authors have done well to pack so much useful material in such a concise and easily accessible format." (Prof. SW Beasley, Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, Vol. 40, 2004)"The text is generally well written . . The sections on imaging in paediatric uroradiology and nuclear medicine are well written and illustrated. . the case reports are concisely and well laid out with useful tips. . The book is not expensive . and may be most useful to those who wish to learn the basics of paediatric urology." (Dr C Crawley, RAD Magazine, September, 2003)
