This new, pocket handbook encompasses all aspects of paediatric radiology. It provides an overview of how to approach the imaging of children including the relative values of each of the imaging modalities for paediatric pathology. Paediatric Radiology opens with a chapter devoted to the different imaging modalities, including radiographs, fluroscopy, ultrasound, CT, MRI and nuclear scintigraphy before moving on to more detailed, systems-based chapters. Within each chapter there are three consistent sections. The first sectionlists common clinical presentations, the differential causes and the appropriate imaging pathways needed to confirm the diagnosis, with recent imaging advances for each condition. The second section discusses the differential diagnosis of radiological features. The final section details the imagingfindings in a wide variety of clinical conditions. In all sections, the value of all imaging modalities are stressed. Extensive high quality images throughout the book, and additional illustrations, aid the reader with diagnosis and detailed referencing points to further reading. The book is an important revision aid as well as an up-to-date reference.
