MRI OF THE NEONATAL BRAIN, 4TH EDITION provides a comprehensive and integrated approach to the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain in neonatology. MRI is becoming increasingly available to clinicians and has been shown to have major advantages over ultrasound as an aid to diagnosis. MRI OF THE NEONATAL BRAIN, 4TH EDITION is divided into four major parts. Part I covers the technical aspects, explaining how MRI works and advising on how to achieve the best possible image with minimal sedation of the neonate. Part II illustrates the normal anatomy and development of the neonatal brain. Part III is a short section on the pathological processes underlying brain disorders in the neonate. Part IV, the largest section of the book, discusses the most common disorders seen in the newborn infant, and contains a series of case studies with discussions, questions and answers.
