Pediatric Radiology texts typically provide only a cursory discussion of pediatric nuclear medicine techniques and applications while pediatric nuclear medicine texts typically review the so-called "structural imaging" modalities in only a superficial fashion. The standard texts do not adequately address the similarities and differences among different imaging modalities (X-rays, scintigraphy, ultrasonography, angiography, CT, MRI, etc.). The result is that the reader of these texts can not gain an understanding of the true role of nuclear medicine in pediatrics. With PEDIATRIC SKELETAL SCINTIGRAPHY, DRS. Connolly and Treves demonstrate the relative merits of scinitigraphy and other imaging tests in evaluating pediatric skeletal disorders. The emphasis is on situations where a complementary relationship exists between nuclear medicine and other modalities. In addition to showing cases in which scintigraphy is abnormal and structural imaging normal, the book also features cases where both scintigraphy and structural imaging are abnormal. The reader will gain an understanding of what can be gained from each modality, and when specific studies are indicated.
