Diagnostic Radiology Paediatric Imaging

Diagnostic Radiology Paediatric Imaging
Tags: Arun Kumar Gupta

Rapid advances are taking place in the field of imaging. This results in the need for re-evaluating and redefining the role of a modality in different clinical scenarios. Coupled to this, particularly in paediatric radiology is the need for ensuring patient safety. The industry has made significant attempts to minimize radiation exposures in imaging and this is pre-requisite that cannot be over-emphasized in children. Paediatric radiology is already a well-established subspecialty in the West, but in the developing world due to the paucity of trained radiologists in proportion to our population, every practicing radiologist needs to be aware of the special needs and disease entities in children. The third edition of the book has been designed to include current recommendations, guidelines and existing knowledge on the subject. The content of all chapters has been updated, while some have been significantly restructured. New chapters have also been added. It is our earnest hope that our readers will find this text informative and that it will aid in their learning process and daily practice.
