It would make an excellent source of reference in the departmental library of every neonatal unit. the book can also be accessed on any internet- ready device through an activation code available with the book...Overall this volume of the Neonatology Questions and controversies series is worth the price."

"This book may appeal to two different types of readers: scientists looking for reviews of interesting subjects in developmental biology and clinicians seeking an up-to-date review of a clinical topic in hematology, immunology, or infectious disease.This book offers a concise overview of the many challenges of radiologic imaging to diagnose urologic conditions. It focuses on the proper technique and appropriate imaging modality for each one. It serves as an excellent quick reference for radiologists dealing with the GU system or urologists caring for patients with GU conditions."- Jay Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody Review!

Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
Description: Another in the series, Neonatology Questions and Controversies, this multiauthored book focuses on hematology, immunology, and infectious disease, each of which comprises about one-third of the 19 chapters. The second edition follows the first by only four years.
Purpose: The editors suggest that the goals are to provide an update on the developmental physiology of the human immune response, novel therapies for hematologic or infectious disease issues, and controversies in immune modulation that may affect the development of allergic disorders. Not all of these subjects will appeal to neonatal clinicians, but each individual chapter is a comprehensive review for individuals who are seeking information in these selected areas.
Audience: The editors have targeted neonatal clinicians (physicians, nurses, and trainees) in their preface, but the sophistication of the presentation is more suited to advanced degree physicians or scientists. Several of the chapters (e.g. blood transfusions, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, NEC, etc.) also will appeal to the everyday provider in the NICU.
Features: The subjects vary from in-depth reviews of developmental biology and physiology to practical discussions of the use of blood transfusions and erythropoietin in the NICU. Not all of the chapters truly follow the concept of highlighting questions and controversies.
Assessment: This book may appeal to two different types of readers: scientists looking for reviews of interesting subjects in developmental biology and clinicians seeking an up-to-date review of a clinical topic in hematology, immunology, or infectious disease. The book is not all inclusive and readers looking for greater breadth in these areas would be best served with a standard neonatal textbook (i.e. Fanaroff and Martin's Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine: Diseases of the Fetus and Infant, 9th edition, Martin et al. (Elsevier, 2011)) or a review of fetal and neonatal physiology (Fetal and Neonatal Physiology , 4th edition, Polin et al. (Elsevier, 2011)).
