This is an update of the in-depth reference textbook of the same title designed as a comprehensive resource on neuroimaging of diseases of the pediatric central nervous system. The structure of the book has been extensively improved, and its contents further expanded. While still aiming at a complete coverage of diseases involving the brain, the head and neck and the spine, the chapters have been extensively rewritten so as to focus on more specific disease categories, with the aim of improving their readability and increasing their usefulness as a reference in the everyday clinical practice. The illustrations have been updated to reflect the latest techniques and findings. As in the previous work, an introductory chapter on embryology is available and the latest advances in prenatal imaging are also discussed. Detailed information is provided on imaging of the full range of diseases, including some that receive very limited attention elsewhere. This new, improved Pediatric Neuroradiology will continue to be an ideal source of information for neuroradiologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and pediatricians, as well as a useful teaching text for residents and fellows in training. A rich analytic index is included to ensure that the book will serve as an easily usable tool in everyday clinical practice.
Andrea Rossi, M.D., is the head of the Pediatric Neuroradiology Department at the G. Gaslini Institute in Genoa, the largest pediatric hospital in Italy, and a Contract Professor of Neuroradiology at the University of Genoa, Italy. Dr Rossi’s expertise is in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of pediatric central nervous system disorders. His main research focus is in spinal cord malformations, metabolic diseases, and the application of advanced MRI techniques to brain diseases, including neuro-oncology. He has received several awards and honors in his career, and serves on the Editorial Boards of Neuroradiology and Pediatric Radiology. He has published 179 scientific manuscripts and has a current h-index of 20. He was a co-editor of the first edition of Pediatric Neuroradiology, published by Springer in 2005.
