Pediatric Radiology Casebase – 2nd Edition PDF
21.35 MB PDF
In the late 1980s, Casebase Pediatric Radiology, first edition, was written to provide a practical textbook to guide radiology students and those imaging children in daily practice. All text documents were produced on a typewriter, and all images were submitted to the publisher as 5×7-inch glossy prints. Between 2000 and 2010 growing interest for a second edition was identified, and an enthusiastic team of university-based pediatric radiologists at Arkansas Children’s Hospital was assembled to undertake it. The goal from the start of this project was to update all text content, to seek current/pertinent references, and to include all new images with improved and consistent image quality.
As in the first edition, cases are divided into nine anatomic sections and are organized by clinical presentation, radiographic findings, diagnosis, discussion/differential diagnosis, pearls, pitfalls, and references. Cases cover a wide range of congenital anomalies, infections, trauma, tumors, syndromes, and metabolic conditions encountered when caring for pediatric patients. We believe this new and improved edition will aid in preparing radiology residents and pediatric radiology fellows for certification examinations, and will aid experienced pediatric radiology practitioners who are seeking recertification. The diagnosis is deliberately excluded from the first page of each case, so that the reader can review the clinical information with the characteristic images provided and try to arrive at a correct diagnosis before reading the explanation in the subsequent text. For general radiologists and pediatricians, a quick review of a comprehensive variety of cases seen in daily pediatric radiology practice is provided.
This new edition features the contributions of many more authors and editors than did the first edition, as the field of radiology has become increasingly subspecialized. All images in this edition were acquired directly in digital format from the
picture archiving and communicating system (PACS) that has replaced hardcopy film since the first edition was published. Also, this new edition is available in both the popular hardcopy print version and in digital format for mobile electronic devices. The latter format includes motion files to better display the morphology of some disease entities and to more directly display physiologic states such as altered blood flow and dynamic morphologic changes such as a collapsing trachea.
We hope that this resource will enhance readers’ lifelong learning with pediatric disease pattern recognition and provide practical teaching points that are useful during and well beyond the training years.
