About this book


This book is a comprehensive compendium of paediatric conditions, and covers clinical and diagnostic imaging for most diseases affecting neonates and children. Detailed descriptions of radiological signs aim to aid the diagnosis and identification of clinical symptoms.

The book contains a large number of images taken from a collection of current and archival photos obtained from three generations of paediatric surgeons and radiologists which further illustrate the points made in the text. This book will act as a reference manual for any person in training who has to care for neonates and children in a hospital setting.

“This book is intended for trainees and practitioners in general pediatrics as well as multiple medical and surgical pediatric specialties. … This atlas is appropriate for the intended audience. It covers a wide variety of conditions concisely yet with sufficient detail and clinical information to prove helpful. It is a more accessible reference than other pediatric radiology books.” (Vincent R. Adolph, Doody's Book Reviews, May 22, 2020)
