About this book

This book comprehensively reviews imaging of the pediatric gastrointestinal tract and accessory digestive organs from a practical approach.

Starting with a brief discussion on techniques this is followed by a couple of comprehensive chapters covering emergency/acute pediatric abdominal imaging. A series of traditional anatomically structured chapters on the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon and accessory organs then follow. Each chapter carefully considers the role of the currently available imaging techniques and discusses and illustrates diagnostic dilemmas. The closing chapter focuses on pediatric interventional procedures performed with imaging guidance.

Since the first edition, the text has been fully updated and new illustrations included. Against the background of rapid advances in imaging technology and the distinctive aspects of gastrointestinal imaging in children and infants, this volume will serve as an essential reference for general and pediatric radiologists as well as for radiologists in training, neonatologists and pediatricians.

Reviews

“The individual chapters are very well written, adequately comprehensive and informative and, as expected from this format, self-contained. … I believe the level of content and depth of discussion by the authors has resulted in a textbook which will be of value to both inexperienced and experienced readers alike. … I would strongly recommend this text to any departments involved in imaging children.” (Dr. Daniel Boxer, RAD Magazine, April, 2017)

“An extension of the first edition presents more chapters (n=9) and the previous ones have been updated. Written in a didactic manner with many illustrations it presents a useful text for pediatric radiologists in training, neonatologists and pediatricians in practice.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 14 (2), December, 2016)

“This is the second edition of a book on imaging the gastrointestinal system in children. It primarily addresses disorders of the bowel with a chapter dedicated to hepatobiliary and pancreatic disease. … It is most suitable for pediatric radiology fellows and attendings. … Overall, this book provides very useful information on important topics.” (Tara Catanzano, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2016)
