Overview

Pediatric Radiology: THE REQUISITES provides a concise yet comprehensive guide to the basics of interpreting diagnostic imaging studies of infants and children. The content is divided by organ system with eight chapters covering: overview of pediatric imaging; chest; heart; gastrointestinal tract; accessory organs of digestion; genitourinary tract; skeletal system; and neuroimaging. Each chapter discusses the use of appropriate imaging modalities in assessing the particular organ system. The diagnosis of emergency conditions is integrated throughout. Special attention is paid to growth and development, which are of utmost importance in interpreting pediatric studies.

Provides concise, comprehensive coverage of the basics of interpreting diagnostic imaging studies of infants and children — precisely the information needed to pass the Boards or CAQs. Features more than 650 state-of-the-art multimodality images, including color Doppler, correlating each disease with various types of imaging. Discusses the use of all appropriate imaging modalities for assessment in each organ system chapter, helping the reader make clinically-relevant decisions in practice. Numerous boxes and tables list pearls, key concepts, differentials, and more, helping the reader absorb information through the use of concise summaries and repeated emphasis of key facts. Integrates the diagnosis of emergency conditions into each chapter as appropriate. Pays special attention to growth and development, helping the reader navigate this uniquely important aspect of pediatric studies. Places principles in a clinical context by discussing various diseases with associated clinical syndromes, causes, findings, and imaging appearances.

Spanish version also available, ISBN: 84-8174-370-4

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen A. Murray, MD (University of Utah School of Medicine)
Description: This monograph on pediatric radiology is the second edition of a core text in the series The Requisites. The first edition of this volume was published in 1993.
Purpose: The goal of this series is to provide separate volumes in each of the major subspecialty areas of radiology from which a resident can obtain a reasonable working knowledge in the first few days of a rotation. This is an excellent idea as the time spent on each rotation is short and optimal experience is gained if core knowledge is gained quickly and then expanded. The goals are accomplished well in this text.
Audience: The intended audience is radiology residents, but this book is also useful as an introductory text for pediatric residents. It is a reasonably sized, practical resource that can update the general radiologist. The author brings considerable experience from his many years as a pediatric radiologist and teacher in Boston, creating a very readable and practical text. The chapter on neuroimaging is written in conjunction with the chief of neuroradiology at The Children's Hospital in Boston.
Features: This volume has good quality illustrations, line drawings, and tables to supplement the text. A separate appendix at the front of the book includes color Doppler images. Reference lists are appropriately short and have been updated. The index is complete and easy to use. It is a good size for frequent use.
Assessment: The book is a very good introductory text to practical pediatric radiology and should be reviewed by all radiology residents as they begin their rotations on pediatric radiology. It is also an excellent update for the general radiologist. The small size makes it readable from cover-to-cover. It is a very good supplement to larger reference texts and has been nicely updated from the previous edition without losing the emphasis on basic training. I highly recommend it.
