Essentials of Pediatric Radiology: A Multimodality Approach provides a concise overview of both basic and complex topics encountered by pediatric radiologists in their daily practice. Written by leading pediatric radiologists from renowned children's hospitals, it focuses particularly on multimodality imaging, covering the full gamut of radiologic diagnostic techniques, including conventional radiography and ultrasound, Doppler ultrasound, up-to-date CT and MRI techniques, and PET-CT. Each chapter is generously illustrated with high quality images, as well as graphs, tables, decision flowcharts and featured cases. Chapters are arranged according to pathologies, rather than organ systems, providing the reader with clinically-oriented information when employing 'whole body' techniques or analysing scans involving multiple anatomical sites. The book is complemented by an outstanding free access website of sample cases containing questions and answers that enable readers to test their diagnostic proficiency - see http://essentials-of-pediatric-radiology.com. A key text for pediatric radiology fellows, radiology residents and general radiologists, this is also essential reading for all pediatricians.

• Concise text with visually engaging format and numerous images, graphs, tables and flowcharts • Online presentation of unknown cases promotes learning and allows readers to test their diagnostic proficiency • Unique structure, organized according to pathologies, providing clinically focused information

Review

'Essentials of Pediatric Radiology has indeed its well-know predecessors … However, pediatric radiology has evolved considerable since these standard texts and this new text book will provide excellent guidance, not only to practitioners in pediatric radiology, but also to pediatric medical residents whose rotations include pediatric services and care of children with enigmatic and complex problems … The text is most often written concisely and the images have been selected judiciously. Production is excellent, with high-quality typography and image reproduction … This book will be a key text for radiology fellows, radiology residents, and general radiologists, as well as for all pediatricians. It will find a comfortable spot on the library shelves of all radiology reading suites. It will help teaching colleagues in selecting material when preparing lessons for medical students and/or trainee radiologists. Overall grade: excellent.' Pediatric Radiology
