Since the second edition of Pediatric Chest Imaging was published in 2007, there have been further significant advances in our understanding of chest diseases and continued development of new imaging technology and techniques. The third, revised edition of this highly respected reference publication has been thoroughly updated to reflect this progress. Due attention is paid to the increased role of hybrid imaging, and entirely new chapters cover topics such as interventional radiology, lung MRI, functional MRI, diffuse/interstitial lung disease, and cystic fibrosis. As in previous editions, the focus is on technical aspects of modern imaging modalities, their indications in pediatric chest disease, and the diagnostic information that they supply. Pediatric Chest Imaging will be an essential asset for pediatricians, neonatologists, cardiologists, radiologists, and pediatric radiologists everywhere.
