About this book


This softcover edition has several notable strengths, such as its succinct and well-organized overview of the subject. Residents will be able to identify cases that they are likely to encounter during board exams and in practice. Dr. Swischuk has selected excellent plain film examples from his personal collection that illustrate the conditions he discusses and reflect his emphasis on cervical radiography. The illustrated cases also include CT and MR images that clarify and qualify the plain film findings. Helpful reference lists complete each chapter and guide residents to resources for further reading. In addition, the direct writing style makes the complex content highly accessible, providing imaging residents with an invaluable introduction to pediatric cervical spine radiology.
