Synopsis:
This practical book is ideal for readers who want to rapidly determine the appropriate imaging for pediatric patients with particular diseases and clinical symptoms and signs. Edited by Drs. L. Santiago Medina, C. Craig Blackmore, and Kimberly Applegate, the text provides a concise and accessible summary of the literature on how and when to use imaging studies. Chapters address the essentials, such as cost-effectiveness, and are written in collaboration by internationally renowned specialists in the fields of pediatrics and pediatric radiology. Topics cover common clinical scenarios in neuroimaging and musculoskeletal, chest, and abdominal imaging. Each particular imaging recommendation is presented along with an in-depth summary of the supporting data and the strength of the evidence. Helpful illustrations, reference tables, and imaging flowcharts highlight the performance of the various tests and their optimal use. The fundamentals are discussed as well, including principles of evidence-based imaging and benefits and risks of radiation dose. An accompanying DVD completes the book and offers a handy format for searching the text. By providing evidence-based guidance, this book is a welcome resource for pediatricians, primary care providers, pediatric radiologists, and radiologists who want to improve clinical decision-making for imaging in children.
