This easy-access reference contains all the information needed to make informed decisions about imaging in childhood disorders. Beginning with an introduction to pediatric image interpretation, the authors cover the pediatric central nervous system, musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, chest and respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, and genitourinary system. There is also full coverage of disorders involving multiple systems, such as those seen in child abuse, cystic fibrosis, leukemia/lymphoma, sickle cell disease, and AIDS. Numerous clinical scenarios illustrate imaging guidelines, highlighted by alogorithms for practical decision-making.
