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 wonderful, profusely illustrated book provides a concise and thoughtful review of all the important diseases of the child's brain. The lesions are well organized into logical categories that help the reader to remember the information conveyed. The important features of each entity are discussed thoroughly. Data from the literature are documented by selected references and are clearly distinguished from the authors' personal experience. The gross pathology of each disease is illustrated by well selected, high quality CT scans and supporting neuroradiological studies. Each caption begins with the relevant clinical data, so the reader understands the clinical context in which the study was obtained. The caption then describes the specific CT features of the case, so the reader learns to interpret the images correctly to arrive at the final diagnosis. By this technique, the authors provide the reader with a large experience in all aspects of pediatric cranial CT and teach him to distinguish properly among the diverse disease states. The authors must be congratulated for their excellence and their me ticulous attention to detail. They have written an important book that brings together the fields of pediatric neurology and pediatric cranial CT, enhancing both. This volume is a necessary addition to the personal and professional libraries of all physicians who care for children: pediatri cians, neurologists, neurosurgeons and radiologists. I feel I am a better physician for having read this text.
