Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Pediatric brain and spine abnormalities textbook fills a gap. [This book] fills the hole in the available books on the market. The strength of this atlas is in the number of images provided per case. Overall, this book fills its role as an atlas and would be a useful bench book in any pediatric or MRI department. It is an ideal book for any practising neuroradiologist and a trainee who is sub-specialising in neuroradiology."RAD Magazine, January, 2006"This generously illustrated book will be of great value to busy clinicians and radiologists . quick reference guide to paediatric neuro-radiology. With nearly 500 pages of high quality radiological images accompanied by brief clinical histories . . There are excellent chapters on both the obvious and more subtle radiological features . . I enjoyed reviewing this book . . an excellent atlas and I would strongly recommend it to all paediatric neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and radiologists. It will also be very handy reference for adult neurosurgeons . ." (Ian K. Pople, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 147, 2005)"Congratulations to the authors on producing a very readable book and one that should be of interest not only to radiology trainees, but also paediatric neuroradiologists. This book contains a wonderful selection of neuro-paediatric cases collected from many years of clinical practice. . The book covers a wide range of 'common' paediatric conditions and also includes a number of extremely rare ones. . It is notable that the images are of excellent quality . . Overall, I can warmly recommend this book to you." (Kirsten Forbes, Neuroradiology, March, 2006)"This new book . is a bold effort to publish an atlas rich with state-of-the-art MR and MRS images of a wide range of common pediatric neurologic diseases. . The strength of this text is the enormous number of excellent images. They are large, clear, and well-annotated with detailed legends. . I would recommend this book for any department that is involved with the neuroimaging of infants and children, because it represents a handy and comprehensive atlas of virtually all the diseases commonly encountered." (Daniel A. Dessner, Pediatric Radiology, Vol. 35, 2005)
