Reseña del editor
|Winner at the 2002 RSM and 2002 BMA Medical Book Awards |
This book will provide a comprehensive and integrated approach to the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain in neonatology. MRI is becoming increasingly available to clinicians and has been shown to have major advantages over ultrasound as an aid to diagnosis. Imaging the Neonatol Brain
is divided into four major parts. Part I
covers the technical aspects, explaining how MR works and advising on how to achieve the best possible image with minimal sedation of the neonate. Part II
illustrates the normal anatomy and development of the neonatal brain. Part III
is a short section on the pathological processes underlying brain disorders in the neonate. Part IV
, the largest section of the book, discusses the most common disorders seen in the newborn infant, and contains a series of case studies with discussions, questions and answers. Royal Society of Medicine Medical Book Awards - 1st Prize Winner at the 2002
British Medical Awards - Highly commended
"No other book is available today that deals with the pre-term brain in such detail: there is excellent descriptive coverage of this difficult subject with first class images. Much of the material is not readily available elsewhere. It is a good book for any trainees involved in neonatology and it should be a bench book for any department undertaking paediatric and neonatal MR. The techniques and images are up-to-date and include coverage of MR spectroscopy and functional imaging."
