Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Richard Tupler, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This primer provides comprehensive yet succinct information on the essentials of pediatric imaging. It is well organized into sections with over 600 clear and relevant images in an exceptionally user friendly and readable format. Because it is so compact, clinically oriented, and easy to read, this is an ideal review tool as well as a convenient quick reference for practice.
Purpose: The intent is to provide a readable, basic introductory book on pediatric imaging. As a pediatric radiology primer, it has truly succeeded in its goal. It presents clear images of common pediatric diseases and disorders, focusing on the imaging features and relevant clinical features of each condition. The topics are discussed clearly and succinctly, with the most relevant facts, emphasizing commonly encountered imaging scenarios and pediatric diseases, complemented by practical differential diagnoses.
Audience: The book targets radiology residents and students in training as well as general radiologists, who can use it as a quick reference. The short explanations and tips on performing common fluoroscopic procedures, for example, are geared towards beginning residents. The book is well suited for each of these audiences, particularly radiology residents early in their training, on a pediatric rotation as a quick reference, or as a review for oral boards. The easy to read text makes for a quick learning and review encounter. This book truly fulfills its premise of a primer. It is a worthwhile companion for radiology residents and students particularly while they are on a pediatric radiology rotation as it will serve to efficiently and effectively reinforce those relevant facts related to specific disorders.
Features: The chapters cover all anatomic regions and disease entities. The book is well organized into sections with good quality images that reinforce the key points. In particular, the material is not only practical, but also current, with topics such as fetal imaging, advanced neuroradiology applications, and safety issues, for example.
Assessment: Though this is not a substitute for a traditional pediatric radiology reference text, it would be an excellent resource for residents to carry with them. Apart from its readable format (lending itself to repeated readings), this book has particular value during the day at the view box, where a quick review of the relevant key facts with appropriate images may be most practical. As such, the book fulfills its goal of being a primer pediatric radiology resource, although is relevant and timely for all levels of training, serving those in their early training or those looking for a quick review of topics while preparing for oral boards will find it particularly useful.
