Title: Pediatric neuroradiology: Cerebral and cranial diseases

Abstract

In this book, a neuroradiologist and a neuropediatrician have combined forces to provide the widest possible knowledge in investigating cranial and cerebral disorders in infancy and childhood. Based on more than 20,000 pediatric CT examinations, with a follow-up time often exceeding ten years, the book aims to bridge interdisciplinary gaps and help radiologists, pediatricians and neurosurgeons solve the various problems of pediatric neuroradiology that frequently confront them. For each disease, the etiology, clinical manifestation, pathological lesions and radiological presentations are discussed, supported by extensive illustrations. Malformative, vascular, traumatic, tumoral, infectious and metabolic diseases are reviewed. Miscellaneous conditions presenting particular symptoms or syndromes are also studied, such as hydrocephalus and neurological complications of leukemia. Contents: Cerebral and cranial malformations; neurocutaneous syndromes; inherited metabolic diseases; infectious diseases - vascular disorders; intracranial tumors; cranial trauma - miscellaneous and subject index.

  • The introduction of CT in the investigation of intercranial pathology has revolutionized the approach to clinical neurological and neurosurgical practice. This book applies the advances of cranial CT to the pediatric patient. The test is divided into two sections. The first portion describes the practical methodology, anatomy and normal and abnormal CT scan appearance, including high or low density lesions, cystic lesions and ventricular or subarachnoid space dilation. The characteristic scans for various neurological diseases are presented and discussed. The author has given special attention to the CT diagnosis of congenital malformations and cerebral neoplasms.

  • Most of the practical and technical aspects of neuroradiology are covered. Included in the initial chapters are plain radiography, angiographic technique, and the basic physics of computed tomography (CT) and MR. The other chapters cover the radiologic appearances of most common intracranial diseases. The orbit is in a separate chapter. The chapter on the spine is expanded in this edition with many cases (106 illustrations).
  • This book provides an overview of modern diagnostic neuroradiology. It presents all the latest diagnostic methods, with particular emphasis on magnetic resonance and CT. Its practical approach includes how-to instructions, the advantages/disadvantages of various techniques, case studies, and an atlas of high-quality illustrations of all important disorders of the brain and spinal cord.

  • Soybeans are not as sensitive to ozone and sulfur dioxide as alfalfa, clovers, and peanuts. Foliar sensitivity is related to genetic materials, cultivars, and environmental factors that contribute to good plant growth. Specific symptoms of fluoride injury on soybeans is unknown. Nearly fully expanded leaves are most sensitive to ammonia. Soybean leaves of all ages show characteristic symptoms of carbaryl, and dicofol injury is associated with fully expanded soybean leaves. Mineral deficiencies are most common in sandy, weathered, and highly organic soils exposed to abundant rainfall or heavy irrigation. Nitrogen-deficient plants become pale green; soybeans require relatively large amounts ofmore » phosphorus with symptoms of its deficiency not well defined. Soybeans require large amounts of potassium, calcium, and magnesium. The symptoms of these mineral deficiencies include small, yellow-green leaves and yellowing of interveinal areas on younger leaves. Manganese and zinc toxicity were discussed. Soybeans are relatively tolerant to boron. 3 references, 1 figure, 1 table.« less
