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.
