The second edition of Dr Swischuk's book provides a much-needed comprehensive overview of neonatal and infant radiology. The text has been revised and updated, and has been greatly expanded to include reviews of recent developments and concepts in the study of gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and neurological problems encountered in the neonate and young infant. Noteworthy areas of coverage that would be of interest to pediatricians and radiologists include topics such as the use of ultrasound in the detection of intracranial hemorrhage, urinary tract abnormalities, and infection, gastroesophageal reflux, and neonatal sepsis.

Numerous illustrations and diagrams accompany the text, and are clearly labeled and of good quality for
