RAD, February 2014

  • Determine the best modality for each patient with state-of-the art discussions of the latest pediatric imaging techniques.
  • Quickly grasp the fundamentals you need to know through a more precise, streamlined format, reorganized by systems and disease processes, as well as "Teaching Boxes" that highlight key points in each chapter.
  • Apply all the latest pediatric advances in clinical fetal neonatology techniques, technology, and pharmacology.
  • Achieve accurate diagnoses as safely as possible. Increased coverage of MRI findings and newer imaging techniques for all organ systems emphasizes imaging examination appropriateness and safety.
  • Reap the fullest benefit from the latest neuroimaging techniques including diffusion tensor imaging, fMRI, and susceptibility weighted imaging.
  • Keep current with the latest pediatric radiological knowledge and evidence-based practices. Comprehensive updates throughout include new and revised chapters on prenatal imaging; newer anatomic and functional imaging techniques (including advances in cardiac imaging); disease classifications and insights into imaging disease processes; and advanced imaging topics in neurological, thoracoabdominal, and musculoskeletal imaging.
  • Compare your findings to more than 10,000 high-quality radiology images.
  • Access the full text online at Expert Consult including illustrations, videos, and bonus online-only pediatric imaging content.
