Advances in Pediatric Thoracic Imaging, An Issue of Radiologic Clinics of North America

Overview

Because of the number and variety of illnesses that can affect the pediatric respiratory system, being able to interpret thoracic images of children is important for the general radiologist. This issue of Radiologic Clinics starts off with an overview of lung and pleural infections. Reviews of small and large airway diseases are followed by separate articles on the uses of ultrasound, MR, and nuclear medicine to image pediatric patients. Also included are articles on lung and vascular anomalies, thoracic trauma, ...

This issue of Radiologic Clinics starts off with an overview of lung and pleural infections. Reviews of small and large airway diseases are followed by separate articles on the uses of ultrasound, MR, and nuclear medicine to image pediatric patients. Also included are articles on lung and vascular anomalies, thoracic trauma, and cardiac disease. The issue is completed with articles on fetal lung imaging and radiation safety.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Graham P. Krasan, MD (William Beaumont Hospital)
Description: This is an extensively revised update of Pediatric Chest Medicine (Radiographic Clinics of North America Vol. 43 No. 2, March 2005) that balances the few remaining topics with new sections that include fetal imaging and an expanded focus on the application of recent technological breakthroughs in MRI and multidetector CT (MDCT). For each summary article, numerous clinical examples are provided to illustrate specific imaging techniques, supplemented with practical advice for optimization. Some topics are now carried through multiple chapters, such as congenital pulmonary airway malformations from fetal MR to MDCT algorithms. Strategies for radiation dose reduction are addressed almost uniformly throughout the book and summarized in a closing section.
Purpose: This book presents a selection of topics that illustrates the great variety of pediatric thoracic abnormalities that may be encountered by radiologists and reviews both current and innovative multimodal imaging approaches to their evaluation.
Audience: It has greatest appeal for radiologists and residents in training who serve pediatric patients, though individual chapters are useful for practitioners in cardiology, infectious disease, and pulmonology.
Features: The updated section on pediatric diffuse lung disease has been augmented with a review of classification changes and the pneumonia section now encompasses infections in normal and immunocompromised hosts, as well as noninfectious mimics. The guest editor and colleagues provide an extensive introduction to MDCT, dynamic image capture, and post-processing volume reconstruction in the context of pediatric large airway imaging. Subsequent chapters include insightful discussions highlighting the relative advantages of MDCT and MR angiography for detecting cardiovascular lesions and assessing postoperative cardiovascular function, the latter of which is also amply reviewed in the nuclear medicine section. The rich use of correlative radiographs, 3D reconstructions, intraoperative and pathology images throughout the book is of particular interest to radiology educators. This organization is very effective in promoting visual clarity in the exposition of vascular and pulmonary malformations. Each author's reference list reflects timely and comprehensive reviews of the literature for the topics.
Assessment: This informative and visually striking book collates a breadth of pediatric thoracic imaging articles that would be difficult to find in any other portable source and is well worth the price.
