From the reviews:
This book provides an excellent theoretical and practical reference to the major modalities in use, with especial importance given to ultrasonography.
A versatile tool for paediatric diseases.
This edition is bursting at the seams with high quality images to illustrate the various common pathologies encountered in everyday clinical practice.
[The editors'] experience is evident as each of the six chapters is easy to read and highly informative.
I was particularly impressed at how the authors promoted the use of ultrasonography.
This book is concise and well written and I think would be of great benefit to both generalists and specialists involved in the diagnosis of childhood diseases.
