It gives the most dramatic and yet noninvasive demonstration of human anatomical and pathological features. This book by Faerber, with other contributors in the fields of radiology and neuroscience, describes the application of MRI for understanding central nervous system disorders in infants and children. The text is divided into 13 chapters. The first 3 discuss the physical principles of MRI; patient monitoring, sedation, and contrast; and the anatomical features of the brain, as depicted by MRI. The next chapters deal with a spectrum of neurologic diseases in infants and children, including congenital brain anomalies, central nervous system infections, cerebrovascular diseases, tumors, and metabolic and degenerative disorders.
