Overview

The value of this atlas is to provide appropriate standards for the maturing skeleton {that} will enhance accuracy and ease interpretation — From the Foreword by Theodore E. Keats, MD, Former Alumni Professor of Radiology, University of Virginia Health Sciences Center

When dealing with the maturing skeleton and its many complex growth alterations, physicians are constantly faced with the question: Is this image normal? The Radiographic Atlas of Skeletal Maturation succinctly answers that question by providing a comprehensive set of male and female reference images for every age and body part. This allows physicians to quickly hone in on normal ranges for the specific case they are reviewing—particularly useful when called upon to read a pediatric skeletal radiograph in the emergency room or while on call.

Special Features:

  • Access to nearly 2,300 high-quality images that provide instant reference to normal views of the skeleton at every developmental milestone-available in both the text and accompanying DVD
  • Multiple projections at every age, sex, and body part combination so that the user can match the reference points in the book to the case at hand and arrive at a solid clinical interpretation
  • Practical text layout organized by gender and body part that provides quick access to images of normal development at any given age
  • A software virtual skeletal survey demonstrates images of younger and older individuals and crystallizes the subtle variations in growth patterns
  • Powerful software package with advanced image enhancement tools allows optimization of atlas image details for greater clarity. Compatible with numerous image formats (including DICOM) allowing viewing and editing of outside images
  • Convenient growth charts included in the book and DVD

This unique resource, with its vast collection of print and DVD images of normal progressive skeletal development, gives physicians the full range of comparative information they need to interpret pediatric skeletal radiographs in any clinical setting. It is the reference standard for radiologists, pediatricians, orthopedists, emergency room physicians, internists, rehabilitation physicians, and training physicians who are called upon to review a pediatric radiograph and confidently make a diagnosis.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Samuel J. Chmell, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book provides "average" sequential photographs of all bones and joints of the immature skeleton from the neonatal period until the cessation of growth. This remarkable accomplishment was made possible by advances in digital imaging and the large number of images archived on PACS.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an atlas of normal skeletal maturation. The innovative user interface of the software component of the accompanying DVD provides a sense of the variation in growth patterns.
Audience: The atlas is intended for practicing and training radiologists and for all those who use radiographs as part of their practice, and it will be useful to residents and registrars in orthopedic surgery.
Features: The 600-page book and accompanying disc demonstrate what skeletal x-rays look like at a given age. What is truly astounding is the new direction of "averaging" and variability at any age. This provides an incomparable database for physicians who require assistance in interpreting x-rays of the immature skeleton and in differentiating the normal from the abnormal.
Assessment: In terms of the book's usefulness, nothing could depict this better than Dr. John Caffey's statement that one must first know the normal before one can recognize the abnormal. This is a unique book in the field, and a worthwhile update of the DVD, Keats and Kahn's Roentgen Atlas of Normal Skeletal Maturation, Kahn et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2007).
