"Pediatric radiologists Thierry, Benson, Spevak, Flax-Goldenberg, and Tekes (all Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland) present a collection of 200 new cases covering all fields of pediatric radiology, including pediatric neuroradiology and fetal MRI. The text incorporates up-to-date developments in pediatric imaging, including the latest technology in imaging and post- processing such as three-dimensional constructions and tractography of fibers within the brain. Presented in a question-and-answer format and illustrated with 400 high-quality radiographic images, the text allows readers to explore, deepen, and further develop their knowledge about the field. Each case includes easy cross-referencing to the companion text, The Prerequisites/>. The cases coincide with the daily routine practice and will stimulate readers to further diagnostic investigation using textbooks, journals, and the Internet. They provide an effective preparation tool for those studying for certification, recertification, and practice in pediatric radiology."
