Overview

This Atlas covers the entire spectrum of brain disease as studied with ultrasound, illustrated throughout with superb-quality images. It is aimed at neonatologists and radiologists confronted with everyday clinical questions on the neonatal ward. Most newborn brain disorders can be identified with ultrasound; this book will therefore be particularly useful in settings with limited MRI facilities. Prenatal ultrasound specialists will also find it valuable as a postnatal reference in their field of interest. Suggestions for differential diagnosis accompany all the sonographic findings, guiding the clinician in proceeding from an abnormal image to a diagnosis. This second edition of the Atlas has been brought up to date to include the many advances in technique and interpretation that have been made in the past decade. The images have been replaced with new ones of higher quality, and all the line artwork has been standardised and improved.

Readership
Neonatologists, radiologists, neuroradiologists with an interest in neonatal ultrasound

From reviews of the first edition:

"This is the most challenging and comprehensive book on this theme, and is an essential reference for clinicians to make a correct diagnosis."
Satoshi Takada, Brain and Development

"This can be little doubt that this title represents the definitive work on neonatal cranial ultrasound. The authors have had extensive experience in the use of ultrasound scanning the neonatal brain for almost as long as ultrasound has been used to investigate intracranial pathology on the neonatal unit. Their combined experience is most impressive."
Malcolm Leven, Archives of Disease in Childhood

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: The authors have tried to make this atlas of neonatal brain anatomy and pathology clinically relevant to practitioners such as neonatologists and pediatric neurologists as well as radiologists. The first edition was published in 1997.
Purpose: The focus is on the causes and neuropathological findings that underlie the changes seen in neuroimaging, with the main emphasis on sonography, although the authors use MRI to illustrate many of the anatomical sonographic findings. The excellent, high quality images and illustrations help nonradiologists understand the echo-anatomy and pathologic changes.
Audience: General radiologists, neonatologists, and pediatric neurologists are the intended audience. Because it is written at such a high level, the book probably will not be practical for students or general pediatric residents. The authors are well-known authorities in this field.
Features: The book reviews normal anatomy and congenital and antenatal brain injury as well as acquired brain damage, such as fetopathy, hemorrhage, asphyxia, stroke, preterm white matter injury, and other miscellaneous abnormalities. The presentations are highlighted with superb quality images and very clear line drawings of the anatomy. References have been updated from the first edition and are quite current. Since the authors indicate that the book is aimed at practicing clinicians, it may have benefitted from a clinician coauthor (neonatologist or pediatric neurologist). Much of the neuroscience and biochemistry in the clinical sections would be enhanced by actual patient correlation illustrating abnormal physical and laboratory findings.
Assessment: This is a superb book with wonderful illustrations and is probably the most comprehensive text on neonatal cranial sonography. It is less clinically oriented than Neonatal Cerebral Investigation, Rennie et al. (Cambridge University Press, 2008), but that book reviews all brain imaging modalities and is less comprehensive in the area of sonography. This second edition is a welcome update and will become a well-used reference because of the high quality of its imaging.
From the Publisher
"It is times such as this that an atlas showcasing clear examples of pathology can be turned to for guidance and pieced together with physical examination and behavioral assessments of the infant to determine the proper course of further treatment. This book should be kept handy in the newborn nursery, neonatal intensive care, and pediatric clinics following up with children born with any type of congenital or acquired brain injury." (MedicalScienceBooks.com, 2012)

"This is a superb book with wonderful illustrations and is probably the most comprehensive text on neonatal cranial sonography." (Doody's, October 2010)

"This revised edition not only includes improved ultrasonic imaging as a result of technological advancements but also highlights the advantages of using additional acoustic windows for greater visualisation of the neonatal brain. The author’s foresight in combining the sonographic images with the far superior image resolution of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the reader a more accurate reflection of the underlying pathology in question. Scattered throughout each chapter is additional diagrams, specimen photographs, schematics and tables to give a well rounded but succinct synopsis of the intended subject discussed ...I would highly recommend this atlas accompany the clinician during any cranial ultrasound examination of the newborn as the overall layout allows for quick referencing and can only improve the quality of the examination." (nicu.org, August 2010)
