Item description for Pediatric Neuroradiology by Paolo Tortori-Donati Andrea Rossi...
The Book "Pediatric Neuroradiology" covers neuropediatric pathologies starting from their in utero expression. The three sections (Brain, Head and Neck, and Spine) are opened by introductory chapters on the embryology of the various compartments, allowing a better understanding of the related malformations, and also contain chapters on the prenatal ultrasound and MRI diagnosis of the various conditions. Each section also includes a chapter dedicated to the vascular malformations of each district and their endovascular treatment. Several topics that are often only superficially dealt with in other books, such as the pituitary gland, hemolymphoproliferative disorders, and rare phakomatoses, are herewith coveredin outstanding detail, especially for the benefit of those with an already established expertise in the field. Advanced imaging techniques (spectroscopy, diffusion, perfusion, and functional imaging) are covered in dedicated chapters, although their application to specific disease entities are also reportedother chapters. In all cases where tissue characterization is required, such as brain and spine tumors, the rich case illustration includes all routinely used imaging sequences (T1, T2, FLAIR, contrast enhanced). The vast body of clinical and genetic information makes this book valuable also for pediatric field clinicianswanting to increase their knowledge in the neurological field. The rich analytic index makes it an easily usable tool in the everyday clinical practice. This volume comprises the most up-to-date body of knowledge in the field of neurological and neurosurgical diseases of the pediatric central nervous system.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pediatric Neuroradiology?
Very nice book, poor quality construction Sep 22, 2007
This book is an excellent newcomer to the field of Pediatric Neuroimaging and now runs neck and neck with Barkovich's text for the "best of" designation. I have encountered no topical omissions from the material. It seems uniformly excellent. The book also includes Head and Neck imaging, areas that are not included in Barkovich's text.
My only complaint about my purchase is that the book seems poorly bound. The cover is bound in a thin fabric that arrived torn along the edges. I returned the first set and got a second set that was better, but still torn. The staples in the gray cardboard cover box were probably responsible. For the very hefty price of this book, I'd expect sturdier materials or smarter packaging. The hefty price raises another obvious point. For most buyers, Barkovich's book (fourth edition) probably remains a far more cost-effective choice for a comprehensive Pediatric Neuroradiology source.
Still, this text represents a new standard in the field.
