1 Scintigraphic Evaluation of the Pediatric Skeleton.- 2 Skeletal Infection.- 3 Skeletal Trauma.- 4 Benign Conditions.- 5 Primary and Metastatic Bone Malignancies.
Paediatric radiology texts typically provide only a cursory discussion of paediatric nuclear medicine techniques and applications, while paediatric nuclear medicine texts typically review the so-called "structural imaging" modalities in only a superficial fashion. With Paediatric Skeletal Scintigraphy, Drs. Connolly and Treves demonstrate the relative merits of scinitigraphy and other imaging tests in evaluating paediatric skeletal disorders, with the emphasis on situations where a complementary relationship exists between nuclear medicine and other modalities. In addition to showing cases in which scintigraphy is abnormal and structural imaging normal, the book also features cases where both are abnormal. Readers will gain an understanding of what can be gained from each modality, and when specific studies are indicated.
With over 532 state of the art illustrations, PEDIATRIC SKELETAL SCINTIGRAPHY by Drs. Connolly and Treves is truly unique in its field as it addresses the similarities and differences among differing image modalities.
