About this book

Evidence-Based Imaging in Pediatrics: Optimizing Imaging in Pediatric Patient Care presents a user friendly guide to the evidence-based science and the merit defining the appropriate use of medical imaging in infants and children. Edited by Drs. Medina, Applegate and Blackmore, this ideal reference gathers contributions by internationally renowned specialists in the field. The book covers the most prevalent conditions and diseases affecting children. Each chapter is framed around important and provocative clinical questions relevant to the daily physician’s practice. Key points and summarized answers are highlighted so the busy clinician can quickly understand the most important evidence-based imaging data. Topics include patient selection, imaging strategies, test performance, cost-effectiveness, radiation safety and applicability. A wealth of illustrations and summary tables reinforces the key evidence.

By offering a clear understanding of the science behind the evidence, the book fills a void for pediatricians, radiologists, clinicians, surgeons, residents and others with an interest in medical imaging and a desire to implement an evidence-based approach to optimize pediatric patient care.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a book that will appeal to an audience of radiologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, residents and fellows, midlevel providers, and others in the fields of diagnostic radiology and pediatric radiology who request imaging for children. … the authors provide a guide to efficient imaging of specific clinical problems in children while minimizing unnecessary radiation risk and efficiently using health care dollars.” (Nancy E. Fitzgerald, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 52 (8), August, 2011)

“The book is an extensive survey of pediatric topics from all organ systems and including issues that arise daily in most large pediatric practices. … this is exactly the sort of book that adds value to the keen eye of a good radiologist. … A book such as this … can help us help our patients. I strongly encourage you to read this book. Smart radiologists and ambitious pediatricians will be richly rewarded by even brief exposure to this book. Excellent.” (Brent Adler, Pediatric Radiology, November, 2010)
