About this book


This second, revised edition of Radiological Imaging of the Neonatal Chest provides a comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of the subject. It is written primarily from the point of view of the paediatric radiologist but will be of particular interest to all antenatal ultrasonographers, neonatologists, paediatric cardiologists, paediatricians and paediatric surgeons. It includes an update on clinical management and appraises the advantages of the various techniques available to image the newborn chest. There is particular emphasis on the impact of recent therapeutic advances on imaging findings. Extensive consideration is given to both antenatal and postnatal imaging of congenital chest malformations, as well as to controversies regarding the postnatal management of asymptomatic infants with these anomalies. There are dedicated chapters on upper airway problems, infection and congenital heart disease, with special emphasis on the current role of magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and interventional therapy. There is also a chapter devoted to computed radiography and digital radiography. This book contains important information for all those involved in caring for the neonate.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"On my desk sit the first and second editions of this successful book. … I have found this book rich in information and most useful, and I recommend it not only to paediatric and adult radiologists but also to intensive care neonatologists, pediatric cardiologists, anaesthetists and obstetricians, as well as other professionals dealing with fetal ultrasound." (Giampiero Beluffi, Radiologia Medica, Vol. 113, 2008)
