Summary "From congenital or acquired problems in newborns to cardiovascular abnormalities in older children, this comprehensive text explains how to interpret chest radiographs and how to report that information in day-to-day practice. It steers readers through this often challenging area using numerous practical case examples, more than 400 high-quality radiographs, drawings and specimen photographs, straightforward explanations of findings, and the collective experience of several of the world's foremost experts on cardiac imaging and pediatric cardiology. After an introductory discussion or normal cardiac anatomy and imaging, the authors provide readers with a systematic approach to understanding chest images in children with congenital or acquired heart disease, followed by bulleted synopses of basic pathologic features, clinical manifestations, and radiographic findings." "This book will improve the accuracy and confidence of any radiologist, cardiologist; cardiac surgeon, or intensivist involved in the interpretation of pediatric chest images and is ideal for residents and fellows in radiology, pediatric cardiology, cardiac surgery, and intensive care medicine."--Jacket
