Diagnostic Imaging of Infants and Children by Robert Wells is a must-have text that I am sure you will keep as a constant friend. It is a one-of-a-kind book, written in a style that is concise and informative. Kudos to Dr. Wells for the superlative work.
This richly illustrated reference covers the gamut of pediatric diseases and injuries. Extensive integration of clinical considerations and review of disease pathogenesis help to make sense of imaging patterns and provide the radiologist with tools to establish a confi dent diagnosis.
Readers of various backgrounds will fi nd this text useful. Radiologists can pull it off the shelf for a quick review of the imaging fi ndings and diff erential diagnosis of a condition, with additional material available for those desiring a more in-depth review of the clinical presentation and pathophysiology. For clinicians, this text is a resource for reviewing the advantages and disadvantages of various imaging approaches and for understanding the significance of imaging fi ndings. The easy-to-read style and the clear correlation of radiologic fi ndings with disease pathophysiology and clinical features make it an excellent choice for medical students, residents, and fellows.
This text is a terrifi c source of information across the entire spectrum of pediatric radiology, and I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject.
