About this book

Back cover text

Sonography of the gastrointestinal tract in fetuses, neonates and children entails no known biological risk, permits serial scanning and can provide information unobtainable with any other imaging modality. In experienced hands it can be used as the initial imaging technique in a number of gastrointestinal diseases and conditions. This book provides a comprehensive account of the current state of the art regarding sonography in this context. An introductory chapter compares the merits of sonography and magnetic resonance imaging of the fetal gastrointestinal tract. Subsequent chapters focus on the technique, pitfalls and findings in a wide variety of applications, including antropyloric diseases, bowel obstruction, bowel wall thickening, colitis, appendicitis, some types of intussusception, abdominal wall and umbilical abnormalities, intraperitoneal tumors, and trauma. In each case the sonographic morphology is considered in depth with the aid of high-quality illustrations. A concluding chapter comprises a quiz based on 15 case reports. Gastrointestinal Tract Sonography in Fetuses and Children will be of value to all with an interest in this field.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a thorough review of disease processes in the gastrointestinal tract in neonates and children and their ultrasound findings. … General radiologists or pediatric radiologists are the target audience. The book has excellent ultrasound images of both routine and unusual cases of gastrointestinal tract pathology. … There are also excellent diagrams and tables and good quality pathology and intraoperative images. This high quality book offers an in-depth look at ultrasound of the gastrointestinal tract in children, detail that cannot be found elsewhere." (Julie Sossaman, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2008)

"This is an extremely impressive book. It is totally meticulous in its quality, detail and depth, with copious references. The text is annotated in paragraphs and points, useful for a reference text. I suspect it will appeal to radiologists with an interest in paediatrics … . It could be useful as a bench book in a general department, and likely more so in a teaching unit." (Anne Wake, RAD Magazine, May, 2009)

"The book is unique as it covers all important topics of the gastrointestinal tract and the diagnostic use of ultrasound. … the book can be recommended to all general and pediatric radiologists involved in ultrasound with a special focus on the evaluation of the gastrointestinal tract. It is an excellent tool for day-to-day use." (A. K. Dixon and Thomas Vogl, European Radiology, Vol. 19, 2009)
