The Atlas of Fetal and Neonatal Brain MR is an excellent atlas that fills the gap in coverage on normal brain development. Dr. Paul Griffiths and his team present a highly visual approach to the neonatal and fetal periods of growth. With over 800 images, you'll have multiple views of normal presentation in utero, post-mortem, and more. Whether you're a new resident or a seasoned practitioner, this is an invaluable guide to the new and increased use of MRI in evaluating normal and abnormal fetal and neonatal brain development. Covers both fetal and neonatal periods to serve as the most comprehensive atlas on the topic. Features over 800 images for a focused visual approach to applying the latest imaging techniques in evaluating normal brain development. Presents multiple image views of normal presentation to include in utero and post-mortem images (from coronal, axial, and sagittal planes), gross pathology, and line drawings for each gestation.
In recent years, Fetal MR has grown continually in importance, and the brain has become the main focus of investigation. However, we lack established standards and a good knowledge of the normal MR appearance. To fill this gap is the purpose of the first part of this book, which is an MR atlas of the cerebral development of the fetus. The second part is dedicated to cerebral pathologies. It includes, for each condition, a summary of the fundamental data, the imaging findings (US and MR) in correlation with neurofetopathology and/or postnatal imaging, and a brief perspective of the prognosis.
This is the most comprehensive book to be written on the subject of fetal MRI. It provides a practical hands-on approach to the use of state-of-the-art MRI techniques and the optimization of sequences. Fetal pathological conditions and methods of prenatal MRI diagnosis are discussed by organ system, and the available literature is reviewed. Interpretation of findings and potential artifacts are thoroughly considered with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. In addition, the implications of fetal MRI are explored from the medico-legal and ethical points of view. This book will serve as a detailed resource for radiologists, obstetricians, neonatologists, geneticists, and any practitioner wanting to gain an in-depth understanding of fetal MRI technology and applications. In addition, it will provide a reference source for technologists, researchers, students, and those who are implementing a fetal MRI service in their own facility.
This Atlas covers the entire spectrum of brain disease as studied with ultrasound, illustrated throughout with superb-quality images. It is aimed at neonatologists and radiologists confronted with everyday clinical questions on the neonatal ward. Most newborn brain disorders can be identified with ultrasound; this book will therefore be particularly useful in settings with limited MRI facilities. Prenatal ultrasound specialists will also find it valuable as a postnatal reference in their field of interest. Suggestions for differential diagnosis accompany all the sonographic findings, guiding the clinician in proceeding from an abnormal image to a diagnosis. This second edition of the Atlas has been brought up to date to include the many advances in technique and interpretation that have been made in the past decade. The images have been replaced with new ones of higher quality, and all the line artwork has been standardised and improved. From reviews of the first edition: "This is the most challenging and comprehensive book on this theme, and is an essential reference for clinicians to make a correct diagnosis." —Satoshi Takada, Brain and Development "This can be little doubt that this title represents the definitive work on neonatal cranial ultrasound. The authors have had extensive experience in the use of ultrasound scanning the neonatal brain for almost as long as ultrasound has been used to investigate intracranial pathology on the neonatal unit. Their combined experience is most impressive." —Malcolm Leven, Archives of Disease in Childhood
Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) is a rapidly expanding imaging method in cardiology which provides unparalleled diagnostic information about the heart. It is however a complex technique and though the availability of scanners is increasing quickly, the expertise required to perform the scans is limited. While no book is a substitute for experience, this handbook provides an invaluable guide to performing and interpreting the scans which should aid both new and experienced operators. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is an indispensable guide to performing and interpreting CMR scans. What to look for, which sequences to include, how to acquire them, and how to interpret the images are all included in the handbook. The information is provided in a quick-reference, easy-to-use format with many images from real cases, and is designed to sit on the scanning console or in the office, providing a step-by-step guide to aid the CMR practitioner at every stage. All areas of cardiovascular imaging are covered, including tips and tricks for optimal imaging and how to avoid and spot artefacts. From patient safety to differential diagnoses of tricky images, to an easy to understand section on the science behind magnetic resonance, all aspects are covered in this concise yet comprehensive guide to this specialist area. Whether a novice or expert in the field, all readers should find this book a useful tool. It is an invaluable reference that no CMR department should be without.
The novel aim of this book is to illustrate the MR imaging features of the fetal and the neonatal brain by matching prenatal and postnatal images for a wide range of neurological abnormalities. The focus is on both conventional and advanced MR imaging techniques, including high-resolution MR autopsy of the fetal brain. During the past ten years, neuroradiological evaluation of the neonatal and the prenatal brain has advanced tremendously. However, even though they are intrinsically related, these two critical stages in brain development are usually studied and presented separately. In order to have a sound understanding of neonatal brain diseases, detailed knowledge of prenatal brain pathology is immensely helpful; conversely, knowledge of neonatal brain disease is a prerequisite for understanding many fetal brain lesions. Written by experts in the field, Perinatal Neuroradiology will be of value for neuroradiologists and pediatric radiologists, as well as obstetricians and neonatologists.

Nowadays, nobody can imagine practicing obstetrics without using obstetrical ultrasound. Working in the prenatal diagnosis field requires dedication, patience, skills, experience, caution, and empathy. The concept of this book was guided by the desire to provide some help to the ultrasound operators. On a daily basis, they are confronted with the challenging task of ruling out or suspecting/confirming the diagnosis of fetal anomalies, either structural or chromosomal. The chapters of this book contain objective and exhaustive updated reviews of the pertinent literature, so that the reader would have a wide reference basis on each subject. Yet, many authors scan the fetus themselves or are directly involved with managing pregnancies with structural malformations or chromosomal anomalies. They kindly shared their personal experience and lessons learned over the years. This book is beneficial for all the professionals working in the prenatal diagnosis.
