More About This Textbook

Overview

Radiographs and other scans regularly form part of the written and ora l components of both undergraduate and postgraduate medical examinatio ns. Written by a combination of two specialist radiologists based at Great Ormond Street Hospital, one of the largest children's hospitals in Europe, and a clinical paediatrician, Paediatric Imaging: Clinical Cases gives a unique, multidsiciplinary perspective on this important subject. The book adopts a case-by-case approach to present 80 exampl e questions with comprehensive model answers that will prove invaluabl e to both paediatricians and radiologists preparing for postgraduate e xaminations, and will also appeal to undergraduate medical students co nsidering specialising in paediatrics or radiology later in their trai ning.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian D Petersen, M.D.(University of Colorado Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a didactic book based on single radiographic images that prompt differential diagnoses with clinical correlation provided by a pediatrician.
Purpose: The purpose is to couch radiologic teaching within a format that conceivably pertains to the day-to-day life of a radiologist (image-based), but more specifically lends itself to residents/fellows reviewing for board exams. The authors also mention the book's use as a short overview of significant radiographic findings for the practicing pediatrician. The objectives are worthy in that case-based discussions of pathology are always of use to radiologists (the more you see, the easier it is to recognize next time). As a board review book, the objectives are partially met. The information is good, but the images are weak.
Audience: The book is intended for radiology residents and fellows, as well as for practicing pediatricians. Its utility for practicing pediatric radiologists appears minimal, but the book may be useful, as the authors state, "as an overview text for those [general radiologists] currently in practice, wishing to further their radiological knowledge."
Features: The book covers 80 cases that have significant plain film findings, with a smattering of barium, CT, MR, and Nucs also presented. The authors pose stimulating questions based on the film and ask for findings and differential diagnosis rather than asking the reader to pin down the exact diagnosis from a single film. Uniquely, the case discussions cover clinical pearls such as presentation, prognosis, and treatment. A significant shortcoming of the book is the limited number of images (one per case) of questionable quality. It is difficult to appreciate some of the findings on the images provided.
Assessment: Although this is a case-based book that provides image-based information with clinical correlation from a pediatrician, I see its usefulness as limited to board review for radiology residents/fellows or for pediatricians wishing to see radiographic presentations of disease.
