The book offers complete chapter coverage on endocrinology, puberty, and disorders of pubertal development; bone marrow maturation in healthy and diseased states; growth failure and pediatric inflammatory bowel disease; skeletal findings in neurometabolic disease, genetic disease, and pediatric oncology patients; and much more. Text-Atlas of Skeletal Age Determination provides: * A comprehensive review of the medical, legal, and social aspects of bone age assessment * An in-depth discussion of MRI as an alternative to the traditional ionizing radiation-based radiographic techniques for the assessment of bone age * Complete guidelines for clinical application of these MRI-based techniques *"Recipes" for replicating these techniques and applications for diverse patient populations * Cutting-edge information prepared and presented by an international team of experts * A superb collection of beautifully reproduced, high-quality images This is an ideal book for radiologists, pediatricians, family physicians, endocrinologists, and sports medicine physicians interested in skeletal development and bone age assessment.
