This exhaustive text covers all aspects of diagnosis and endovascular treatment of neurological and neurosurgical diseases of the pediatric central nervous system starting from their in utero expression. It also includes the vascular malformations of each district and their endovascular treatment. Besides the "normal" imaging techniques the advanced techniques (spectroscopy, diffusion, perfusion, and functional imaging) are covered in detail. Several topics that are often only superficially dealt with in other books are herewith covered in outstanding detail. The volume is richly illustrated with high-quality neuroradiological images, with pathological correlation where applicable. The rich analytic index makes it an easily usable tool in the everyday clinical practice. The book serves both as a reference for specialists (neuroradiologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, pediatricians) and as a teaching text for residents and fellows-in-training.

This third edition of Pediatric Radiology—a volume in The Requisites in Radiology series—covers everything from basic principles of interpreting diagnostic imaging studies through cutting-edge techniques. Expert authors Johan G. Blickman, MD, PhD and Patrick D. Barnes, MD are now joined by Bruce R. Parker, MD to provide the latest advances in pediatric radiology in a convenient, quick-access format with high-quality images. This edition features a greater emphasis on differential diagnosis, neuron functional imaging, and coverage of the dynamic topic of cardiac MR. You’ll have everything you need to succeed in radiology examinations, subspecialty rotations, and clinical practice. Provides comprehensive yet concise coverage of the core material fundamental to this subspecialty for learning and quick reference. Presents material in a logical anatomic sequence, organized by organ system with eight chapters covering an overview of pediatric imaging, chest, heart, gastrointestinal tract, accessory organs of digestion, genitourinary tract, the skeletal system, and neuroimaging. Features a multi-modality approach to provide you with the most common imaging approaches tailored to each organ system. Emphasizes that pediatric diagnosis is a distinct specialty, as opposed to an aberration from standard adult diagnosis. Includes tables, boxes, pearls, key concepts, and differential diagnosis throughout the text to make key material accessible and easy to reference. Presents expanded coverage—by more than 20%—on the basics of interpreting diagnostic imaging studies of infants and children so you get an even more comprehensive guide that still maintains its concise format. Reflects the advances and changes in the field through extensive updates to many of the images and all the chapters, tables, boxes, FAQs, and Pearls & Pitfalls. Provides new insights from additional co-author Bruce R. Parker, MD—a respected authority in the field—for new approaches to the material. Features an increased emphasis on neuron functional imaging to highlight the recent developments in this area. Includes more differential diagnosis and integrates the diagnosis of emergency conditions throughout out the text so you can quickly and easily identify conditions accurately.

This book provides clear guidance as to which neuroradiological findings in ill or injured patients should be immediately communicated by radiologists and trainees to the emergency room and referring physicians in order to facilitate key decisions and eliminate preventable errors. It offers a practical and illustrative approach that identifies what to look for and how to report it and describes the required follow-up and the most common differential diagnoses of the main critical findings in neuroradiology. The book is distinctive in being written from a “critical findings perspective”, which makes its content more practical and memorable than that of a standard Emergency Neuroradiology textbook. It also illustrates the value of developing algorithmic approaches to report and communicate critical findings based on lists. While the book will appeal to a broad and variable audience, it is especially addressed to radiology training programs and will be a “must read” for residents and fellows in training.

Diagnostic neuroradiology is undergoing such rapid change that standard texts are quickly becoming outdated in important respects. Recent Advances in Diagnostic Neuroradiology is designed to complement the general textbooks of neuroradiology by documenting and discussing the progress that has been achieved. Following six introductory chapters, 26 important topics in brain and spinal imaging are discussed in detail, with appropriate illustrations and a review of the most recent literature. Each of these topics has specifically been chosen in order to summarize recent developments and to document the state of the art in the field. This book, written by acknowledged experts in the field, will be of relevance and importance to all with an interest in neuroradiology.
