From the reviews:
"This is a book that will appeal to an audience of radiologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, residents and fellows, midlevel providers, and others in the fields of diagnostic radiology and pediatric radiology who request imaging for children. ... the authors provide a guide to efficient imaging of specific clinical problems in children while minimizing unnecessary radiation risk and efficiently using health care dollars." (Nancy E. Fitzgerald, The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, Vol. 52 (8), August, 2011)"The book is an extensive survey of pediatric topics from all organ systems and including issues that arise daily in most large pediatric practices. ... this is exactly the sort of book that adds value to the keen eye of a good radiologist. ... A book such as this ... can help us help our patients. I strongly encourage you to read this book. Smart radiologists and ambitious pediatricians will be richly rewarded by even brief exposure to this book. Excellent." (Brent Adler, Pediatric Radiology, November, 2010)
