Edition: Third Edition
Date: November 1999
Thoroughly updated and substantially expanded, the Third Edition of this acclaimed reference covers the full range of pediatric diseases diagnosable by modern neuroimaging. Coverage ranges from normal development to diseases and anomalies of the pediatric nervous system. Most chapters include new diseases, as well as updates on entities previously described.
This edition provides expanded coverage of the head and neck and significantly more information on inborn errors of metabolism. The chapter on normal development of the neonatal and infant brain, skull, and spine has been expanded to include fetal brain MRI. This edition also includes new concepts on hypoxic-ischemic brain injury and malformations of cerebral cortical development.
To facilitate fast, easy reference, this edition includes a "List of Disorders," which lists the conditions discussed in each chapter and their corresponding page numbers. This new feature enables readers to quickly look up a disorder and is particularly helpful when a reader is unsure of the name of an entity.
