This book is a practical guide to the radiologic evaluation of acute musculoskeletal injuries of the upper and lower extremities in children. It covers the detection of more subtle and frequently missed fractures and injuries such as buckle fractures, Salter Harris I and II fractures, and epiphyseal and metaphyseal fractures.  It also emphasizes the assessment of soft tissues and periarticular fat pads, which can lead to discovery of the sites of bony injuries.  Other pathologies that affect the musculoskeletal system, such as infections and tumors,  are also discussed.  It includes over 600 magnetic resonance, computed tomography, ultrasound, and radiographic images organized by anatomic region.  Edited by Leonard Swischuk, a world-renowned expert in pediatric radiology and trauma imaging, Emergency Musculoskeletal Imaging in Children is a valuable resource for diagnostic radiologists, emergency physicians, residents, and fellows.
