Practical Pediatric Imaging: Diagnostic Radiology of Infants and Children

Practical Pediatric Imaging: Diagnostic Radiology of Infants and Children Donald Kirks justifies the appearance of another textbook of pediatric radiology on the grounds that a practical overview of pediatric imaging using all modalities is not currently available. I think he is correct and that this book will fill a void. The first chapter deals with the practical techniques of imaging in the pediatric patient. The concept of problem-oriented pediatric radiology is to the forefront. There are useful hints on equipment, protection, and special examinations. The subsequent seven chapters are divided by traditional organ systems and emphasize techniques of examination followed by excellent descriptions of common general abnormalities, including normal variants and rarer specific abnormalities. All chapters include excellent clear lists and diagrams, are profusely illustrated, and have excellent references. Finally, there are four appendices dealing with patient preparation, suggested projections, radiation dosage, and recommended techniques. Dr Kirks has directed this book at, among others, trainee radiologists, radiologists in general http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
