This textbook provides a comprehensive review of gynecological imaging in infancy, childhood, and adolescence. Experts from the disciplines of pediatric radiology, gynecology, surgery, and endocrinology have come together to produce a textbook that, while written primarily from the perspective of the radiologist, will be of value to all professionals involved in the management of these patients. The normal development of the female reproductive tract is described in detail through embryological development, normal childhood appearances, and puberty. Congenital abnormalities are addressed in chapters reviewing structural abnormalities of the reproductive tract and disorders of sex development. A symptoms-based approach is followed in chapters devoted to the assessment of the patient with gynecological pain and disorders of menstruation. Disorders of the breast and the imaging of patients with gynecological neoplasia are considered in dedicated chapters.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It is beautifully illustrated with high quality images and informative tables. It has been written by a paediatric radiologist and clinicians, giving a very useful multidisciplinary approach. It is very thorough and well structured, with a good systematic format. . this is an excellent text, and fulfils an important niche. . It is an important text for radiologists with a paediatric/gynaecology interest. It would also be a useful book for paediatricians in training and radiologists in training."
