Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Julie Sossaman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a thorough review of disease processes in the gastrointestinal tract in neonates and children and their ultrasound findings.
Purpose: The purpose is to demonstrate the imaging potential of ultrasound in the fetus, neonate, and child. This is a worthwhile objective because ultrasound can be an underused modality for imaging the gastrointestinal tract.
Audience: General radiologists or pediatric radiologists are the target audience.
Features: The book has excellent ultrasound images of both routine and unusual cases of gastrointestinal tract pathology. Additionally, it includes images from other modalities such as plain radiography and fluoroscopy studies. One of the highlights is the repeated use of the authors' own experience in the personal study sections in which they describe the frequency with which they have encountered specific imaging findings related to diseases in their own practices. There are also excellent diagrams and tables and good quality pathology and intraoperative images.
Assessment: This high quality book offers an in-depth look at ultrasound of the gastrointestinal tract in children, detail that cannot be found elsewhere.
