The advent of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has had a major impact on neuroimaging. This new imaging modality has revolutionized diagnosis and management of central nervous system (CNS) disorders. This multiauthored text on MRI covers the basic physics, methods of sedation in infants and children, normal anatomy, the neonate, congenital abnormality trauma, vascular disorders, tumors, metabolic and degenerative disorders. There is a comprehensive chapter on MRI of the spine in addition to coverage of the orbit and two chapters on aspects of MR spectroscopy, which is expected to attain greater importance in neuroimaging. This book is a wide-ranging text on MRI of brain, spine, and orbital abnormalities intended for pediatricians, neurologists, radiologists, and all whose work concerns the care of infants and children.
