Presented in a concise and readable format, Pediatric Radiology provides a comprehensive review of 120 pathologies commonly encountered by practising radiologists and residents. As part of the Rotations in Radiology series, this volume offers a guided approach to imaging diagnosis with a constant depth of coverage, a structured template, and incorporation of applied physics, distinguishing it from other texts in the field. A definition is given for each pathology in this volume, followed by: demographics, clinical presentation, imaging modalities and features, imaging algorithm, applied physics, differential diagnoses and pitfalls, and a bulleted summary of key points. Designed for point-of-care use while training on a specific rotation, as well as for exam review and ongoing reference, Pediatric Radiology is the perfect tool to impart to residents, as well as to refresh for practitioners, the essential facts of common pathologies and the various modalities used to interpret them.
