Review Quotes
From the reviews of the second edition:"This book includes discussions of both the technical aspects of imaging the pediatric chest and diseases of particular concern in the pediatric population. … The topic and emphasis are appropriate and the book meets the editors' objectives. In my opinion, the book is appropriate for practicing pediatricians, both general and specialized, as well as pediatric radiologists and general radiologists performing pediatric studies. As such, it is useful for trainees in those areas." (Lisa Diethelm, Doody's Review Service, February 2008)"Drs. Lucaya and Strife plus their international team are back on the lime with a most impressive second edition of their book. … I believe this book to be of great theoretical and practical importance and stress this opinion. I hope it will be used at large non only by paediatric radiologists but also by all radiologists who have to deal with chest disease in children as well as by Paediatricians, Pneumologists and Paediatric Surgeons. … it should become a must in all Radiology Schools." (Giampiero Beluffi, Radiologia Medica, Vol. 113, 2008)"The book has 18 chapters covering most imaging modalities. ... this book is meant for radiology house staff and practicing radiologists. ... The large number of interesting cases makes it an invaluable teaching tool and reference book for those embarking on a career in pediatric radiology, as well as those practicing pediatric radiology." (Bruce J. Barron, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 49 (9), September, 2008)"This updated second edition of Pediatric Chest Imaging: Chest Imaging in Infants and Children highlights 'continued advancements in imaging technology' that are improving patient care and the understanding of chest diseases. … This book takes on a grand task and serves its readers well. I believe medical libraries, pediatric and pulmonary radiologists, and pediatricians with an interest in chest imaging would benefit from buying this fine and interesting textbook." (Harris L. Cohen, Radiology, Vol. 252 (1), July, 2009)

Summaries
Back Cover Copy
Imaging of the pediatric chest continues to evolve rapidly. All chapters in this 2nd edition of Pediatric Chest Imaging have been extensively updated, with additional disease-specific information and numerous new illustrations. The book thus presents the state of the art in the diagnosis of pediatric chest disorders, highlighting the role played by advanced technology. As the conventional features of most of these disorders are extremely well known, special attention is devoted to the technical aspects of the modern imaging modalities, their indications, and the diagnostic information that they supply. Individual chapters focus on chest ultrasound, nuclear medicine imaging, high-resolution chest CT, helical CT, and pediatric cardiac CT and pediatric cardiacMRI. Others are directed towards specific disorders, including congenital malformations of the chest, chest tumors, pulmonary infection, trauma, the lung in systemic diseases, the pediatric airway, foreign bodies, the thymus, and the chest wall. Without exception, the authors of this book are internationally known specialists with great expertise in the field. This book will serve as a handy, superbly illustrated reference for all who routinely image children, as well as for those who need access to information on how best to image them!
