Featuring more than 800 illustrations, this volume is the only comprehensive reference on the extracranial applications of CT in children. Computed tomography has significantly altered the radiologic evaluation of disease processes in children. Its latest technological advances--helical (spiral) CT, 3-D imaging, CT angiography, and virtual endoscopy--have yielded fast and accurate diagnoses in virtually every body site. To help radiologists maximize the clinical benefits of this remarkable tool, Pediatric Body CT ...looks at normal anatomy--including developmental variations--so you'll know what's typical, what's not ...provides vital, timely information on conducting the CT examination ...offers a practical approach for effectively utilizing CT and other imaging methods ...reviews the current state of scientific opinions on specific disease entities. You'll come away with a clear understanding of CT's role in investigating childhood diseases--from its indications and limitations to its most promising clinical applications. From the very first page, you'll see why Dr. Siegel is renowned as a leading radiologic educator. Her text is straightforward and logically organized. An introductory chapter reviews general techniques for performing CT in children (including sedation and intravenous and oral contrast enhancement), as well as practical protocols for imaging the neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis, and musculoskeletal system. Succeeding chapters--organized by site--detail specific CT techniques ...basic anatomy ...and findings in various pathological conditions. The final chapter describes the role of CT in the evaluation of children with thoracoabdominal trauma. Although Pediatric Body CT is intended primarily for radiologists and residents, pediatricians and surgeons wishing to understand the limitations and clinical applications of CT are sure to benefit from the information in this book
