About this book

Imaging of the pediatric chest has changed significantly over the past 20 years, predominantly owing to the introduction of new technology. With these advances, knowledge of pediatric chest diseases has expanded considerably. This book presents the state of the art in the diagnosis of pediatric chest disorders, highlighting the role played by advanced technology. As the conventional features of most of these disorders are extremely well known, special attention is devoted to the technical aspects of the modern imaging modalities, their indications, and the diagnostic information that they supply. Individual chapters focus on chest ultrasound, nuclear medicine imaging, high-resolution chest CT, helical CT, and cardiac MRI. Others are directed towards specific disorders, including congenital malformations of the chest, chest tumors, pulmonary infection, trauma, the lung in systemic diseases, the airway, foreign bodies, the thymus and the chest wall. Without exception, the authors of this book are internationally known specialists with great expertise in imaging pediatric patients and deep knowledge of pediatric diseases. This book will serve as a handy, superbly illustrated reference for all who routinely image children, as well as for those who need access to information on how best to image them!
