Subsequent chapters cover generalized orthopedic diseases such as neurofibromatosis and osteogenesis imperfecta, infectious processes, neuromuscular diseases, musculoskeletal tumors, trauma, and orthopedic procedures. The chapters review associated epidemiology, clinical presentation and evolution, treatment, and differential diagnoses, with in-depht analysis of imaging characteristics. With more than 1800 images, high-quality MRI, CT, and US examples complement the radiographs of a broad variety of musculoskeletal disorders.
The book has been thoroughly researched and clearly written by expert pediatric and musculoskeletal radiologists and extensively reviewed by pediatric orthopedic surgeons. This canonical text addresses conventional and advanced imaging of the complete spectrum of pediatric orthopedic pathology. Pediatric Orthopedic Imaging is an essential reference for all radiologists and orthopedic surgeons whose practice includes pediatrics.
