Review Quotes
From the reviews:Doody's Listings and Reviews -**Features**This well organized book provides complete coverage of the brain, ENT, head and neck, orbits, and spine. The imaging techniques are combined with excellent pathologic specimens, clinical photos, and illustrations.**Assessment**This is one of the best books on the topic of pediatric neuroradiology.

This book deserves a place in every department where paediatric neuroradiology is practised. RAD Magazine, 2005"The first edition of Pediatric Neuroradiology is a two-volume text divided into three sections … . is well organized, clearly written, and comprehensive. All neuroradiology fellows and neuroradiologists should read this book and have it available as a reference. It will be a great resource to training and practicing pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropathologists." (Sean P. Symons, Radiology, Vol. 241 (3), 2006)"The book is notable by its detailed coverage of relevant embryology, molecular biology and genetics, providing excellent up-to-date references for the non-expert in these fields. … While a wide range of diagnostic modalities are included in this book, there is a particular strong coverage of both MR and sonography, reflecting current paediatric use. … offers an excellent reference book for paediatric neuroimaging and is the result of a great deal of hard work. … I would certainly recommend it find a place on your shelf." (Kirsten Forbes, Neuroradiology, Vol. 50, 2008)"In creating this textbook, Tortori-Donati and Rossi set out with the audacious goal of creating perhaps the most comprehensive and sweeping textbook on the subject of pediatric neuroimaging to date, and it appears as if they have done just that. … an invaluable resource to those whose interest in pediatric neuroimaging extends well beyond surface comprehension. … Pediatric Neuroradiology is a most welcome addition to the existing canon of texts on the subject and one that I expect will withstand the test of time." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 28, August, 2007)
" ...ein exzellentes Standardwerk höchster Qualität.., das mit Sicherheit großen Anklang finden wird. Alle Kapitel zeichnen sich aus durch kontinuierlich durchgehaltene Gliederung, sind inhaltlich umfassend ausgestaltet und flüssig zu lesen. Das Bildmaterial ist eine Augenweide... gut plaziert, zutreffend ausgewählt und exquisit reproduziert..." Pädiatrische Praxis, 2007, Band 69, Heft 4Aus den Rezensionen:"... Mit vielen Skizzen wird auf die komplexen embryonalen Grundlagen eingegangen und ... der 'rote Faden' der Diagnose und Pathologie einprägsam gezogen. Die Illustrationen sind von hoher Bildqualität und Prägnanz. Die Pathologie ist durch Pfeile markiert. Es wird ausführlich auf die klinische Komponente eingegangen, was für den praxisorientierten Anwender besonders attraktiv erscheint. … Dem Autor ... ist … der Spagat gelungen, ein für Anfänger leicht verständliches und für den Experten ausreichend umfassendes Werk zu veröffentlichen. Als ... Geheimtipp dürfen die beiden Bände ... in der Bibliothek ... nicht fehlen ..." (Dr. Wolfang Eicher, in: Kärntner ÄrzteZeitung, 2007, Issue 4, S. 25)

Summaries
Main Description
This exhaustive text covers all aspects of diagnosis and endovascular treatment of neurological and neurosurgical diseases of the pediatric central nervous system starting from their in utero expression. It also includes the vascular malformations of each district and their endovascular treatment.Besides the "normal" imaging techniques the advanced techniques (spectroscopy, diffusion, perfusion, and functional imaging) are covered in detail. Several topics that are often only superficially dealt with in other books are herewith covered in outstanding detail. The volume is richly illustrated with high-quality neuroradiological images, with pathological correlation where applicable.The rich analytic index makes it an easily usable tool in the everyday clinical practice.The book serves both as a reference for specialists (neuroradiologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, pediatricians) and as a teaching text for residents and fellows-in-training.

Long Description
The Book "Pediatric Neuroradiology" covers neuropediatric pathologies starting from their in utero expression. The three sections (Brain, Head and Neck, and Spine) are opened by introductory chapters on the embryology of the various compartments, allowing a better understanding of the related malformations, and also contain chapters on the prenatal ultrasound and MRI diagnosis of the various conditions. Each section also includes a chapter dedicated to the vascular malformations of each district and their endovascular treatment. Several topics that are often only superficially dealt with in other books, such as the pituitary gland, hemolymphoproliferative disorders, and rare phakomatoses, are herewith covered in outstanding detail, especially for the benefit of those with an already established expertise in the field. Advanced imaging techniques (spectroscopy, diffusion, perfusion, and functional imaging) are covered in dedicated chapters, although their application to specific disease entities are also reported other chapters. In all cases where tissue characterization is required, such as brain and spine tumors, the rich case illustration includes all routinely used imaging sequences (T1, T2, FLAIR, contrast enhanced). The vast body of clinical and genetic information makes this book valuable also for pediatric field clinicians wanting to increase their knowledge in the neurological field. The rich analytic index makes it an easily usable tool in the everyday clinical practice. This volume comprises the most up-to-date body of knowledge in the field of neurological and neurosurgical diseases of the pediatric central nervous system.
