Emergency Radiology of the Acutely III or Injured Child,

This book of almost 500 pages is devoted to that aspect of emergency pediatrics for which diagnoses are made with the aid of radiological examinations. The author aims to outline (1) general approaches to diagnostic problems, (2) helpful rules of thumb, and (3) specific diagnostic signs. Sometimes he delves convincingly into pathophysiologic-roentgenographic correlations.

The roentgenographic contribution is emphasized with 564 figures of generally excellent quality, which contain approximately 1,088 roentgenograms. Only a few examples of other radiological diagnostic methods are included: nine computerized tomograms, three sonograms, and five radionuclide scans. Illustrative line drawings are effectively used in 25 instances to help clarify diagnostic features. One graph and three tables also complement the text. Pertinent, recent, and mainly US references are conveniently listed after each subsection, which allows for easier retrieval.

Normal variations, where appropriate, are distinguished from abnormal findings, especially in the skull, vertebral column, and limbs.
