About this book


This book describes in detail all aspects of pediatric uroradiology. While the book is written primarily from the point of view of the radiologist, it includes much important information for the pediatrician, pediatric surgeon, and urologist. It is specifically designed to aid the clinician in decisions on imaging management. The technique and current value of all imaging and interventional procedures are presented, and the diverse problems associated with the changing anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the growing organism are explained. The whole spectrum of imaging features of agenesis, anomalies, dysplasia, parenchymal diseases, neoplastic diseases, stone disease, vascular hypertension, renal failure, renal transplantation and genitourinary trauma is covered. Individual chapters are devoted to vesicoureteric reflux, urinary tract infection, upper urinary tract dilatation, voiding dysfunction, and neurogenic bladder. Specific urological problems associated with imperforate anus and epispadia-exstrophy complex are discussed. Throughout, additional information is provided on operative options, postoperative complications, and clinical and radiological normal values. This book will prove of great interest and benefit to all who are involved in caring for children from birth to adolescence.
