From the reviews:
"A very concise and didactic text presenting 102 patients. Each case has a short history, the MRI findings, diagnosis and discussion. Very useful for pediatric and general imaging specialists and sports physicians." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 8 (3), March, 2011)
"Using a case-based approach, this well-organized and readable book covers the most important musculoskeletal conditions affecting the pediatric population. ... Though not explicitly stated, it is obvious that anyone involved in the interpretation of musculoskeletal images in the pediatric population would find this book invaluable. Every musculoskeletal and pediatric radiologist ... should have access to this useful work. ... This user-friendly resource focusing on both commonly encountered and unusual pediatric conditions (including sports injuries) is a particularly welcome addition to the radiology textbook marketplace." (Richard Tupler, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2010)

Pediatric and Adolescent Musculoskeletal MRI: A Case-Based Approach is a user-friendly resource that covers more than a hundred MRI cases of commonly encountered and unusual pediatric conditions, including the rapidly growing area of sports injuries in older children and adolescents. Each case is presented as an unknown, and the progression from initial findings to diagnosis, discussion, illustrated differential considerations, and orthopedic perspectives make this book ideal for self-education. With nearly a thousand images to complement clear, concise text, this reference is a unique and useful tool for all physicians involved in the musculoskeletal imaging and diagnosis of pediatric and adolescent patients.
