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.

Few graduating residents are ready for the demands of subspecialty neuroradiology. This is in part because there remain gaps in the educational literature prior to fellowship. Subspecialty practice requires familiarity with exams and procedures that residents rarely encounter. Neuroimaging is frequently both high complexity and high acuity. The beginning of fellowship can therefore present the steepest and highest stakes learning curve encountered during the whole of radiology training. The goal of this text is to provide a primer for this challenging year. Search patterns, procedure checklists, recommended resources, and tips for efficiency are presented in as accessible a manner as possible. This book is everything I wish I had known and everything I would pass on to each new trainee. I’m sure it’ll be a useful tool on your path to becoming an excellent neuroradiologist and physician.

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.
