Radiography is an integral part of paediatric health care. It is
frequently requested to assist in the diagnosis, management and
treatment of childhood disease and illness. Accurate interpretation
of paediatric radiographs can depend entirely
on the quality
of images produced by the radiographer, yet there are few books
available on this crucial aspect of radiographic practice.
Paediatric Radiography fills a gap. It explores
radiographic practice within the context of the modern health
service and focuses on how our knowledge and understanding of
paediatric growth, development and illness can inform and influence
radiographic procedures. It includes detailed coverage of specific
paediatric techniques and good practice models, including the role
of multi-modality imaging, and looks specifically at radiation
protection, the chest and upper airways, the abdomen, neonatal
radiography, trauma, orthopaedics, and non-accidental injury.
