Since the first edition of Pediatric Uroradiology, very significant advances have been made in the imaging and treatment of common and important pediatric urologic disorders such as vesicoureteric reflux, urinary tract infection, and upper urinary tract dilatation. This revised and extended version takes full account of the sometimes dramatic changes. It describes in detail all aspects of pediatric uroradiology, embracing both recent developments and established concepts. New chapters have been added, for example on genetics in nephrourology and clinical management of important nephrourologic disorders. Short conclusions are included at the end of chapters and sections to provide the reader with the key information on the specific topic under consideration. This book will allow not only the (pediatric) radiologist, but also the pediatrician, pediatric surgeon, and urologist to meet the challenges of today’s pediatric uroradiology.
