"This set of books not only defines the entire field of pediatric radiology but shows just how far radiology/diagnostic imaging has progressed during the decades…The material is vast and complete…The completeness of this work is
emphasized by this Website, which features video clips, self-assessment questions, and a complete set of images…No department or hospital library should be without this 2-volume set, and every serious pediatric radiologist should own a personal copy."—AJNR
The book has been substantially updated since the prior edition, with increased text and improved images, as our knowledge and imaging quality have advanced. The quality of the images, illustrations, paper, figures, and tables is superb…The online appendixes are particularly helpful because they make a large amount of technical information that is needed on a daily basis available at the workplace - RSNA journals, Volume 252, September 2009
