The incidence of acute and overuse sports injuries in children and adolescents are increasing. Radiologists need to be familiar with the advantages and limitations of the various imaging modalities used to evaluate the injured young athlete. This book, written by leading experts from Europe and the United States, covers a wide spectrum of sports injuries seen in children and adolescents. The first part comprises a series of introductory chapters on topics such as the clinician's viewpoint, normal anatomy and variants, the imaging of articular cartilage, and the current role of ultrasonography. In subsequent chapters, each important site of injury is considered individually with the aid of informative images. The final part of the book resembles an atlas and presents the most commonly encountered injuries in the popular sports of football, skiing, water sports, tennis, and gymnastics. Throughout, particular attention is paid to the most recent advances in knowledge and imaging.

From the reviews:

"The book edited by dr. Karantanas and his international team is devoted to and fully covers ... the topic of sport injuries in the young. ... this book will be very much appreciated by radiologists, orthopaedics, paediatricians, physiotherapists and sports trainers." (G. Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 117, 2012)

"This book is part of the Diagnostic Imaging series ... and is a useful addition. It covers all aspects of sports injury and describes the most suitable imaging modality to make the diagnosis. ... The number and quality of illustrations is good. ... the layout of the chapters makes it useful as a reference text to dip into. ... Overall this book would be of value to a consultant radiologist who is involved in imaging traumatic injuries in children and adolescents ... ." (Karl Johnson, RAD Magazine, December, 2011)
