This Atlas covers the entire spectrum of brain disease as studied with ultrasound, illustrated throughout with superb-quality images. It is aimed at neonatologists and radiologists confronted with everyday clinical questions on the neonatal ward.

Most newborn brain disorders can be identified with ultrasound; this book is therefore particularly useful in settings with limited MRI facilities. Prenatal ultrasound specialists will also find it valuable as a postnatal reference in their field of interest. Suggestions for differential diagnosis accompany all the sonographic findings, guiding the clinician in proceeding from an abnormal image to a diagnosis.

This second edition of the Atlas has been brought up to date to include the many advances in technique and interpretation that have been made in the past decade. The images have been replaced with new ones of higher quality, and all the line artwork has been standardised and improved.

Readership
Neonatologists, radiologists, neuroradiologists with an interest in neonatal ultrasound.

INDEX 408

'This can be little doubt that this title represents the definitive work on neonatal cranial ultrasound. The authors have had extensive experience in the use of ultrasound scanning the neonatal brain for almost as long as ultrasound has been used to investigate intracranial pathology on the neonatal unit. Their combined experience is most impressive.' 

Malcolm Leven, Archives of Disease in Childhood

'This is the most challenging and comprehensive book on this theme, and is an essential reference for clinicians to make a correct diagnosis.' 

Satoshi Takada, Brain and Development (Review of the 1st edition)

'This is a superb book with wonderful illustrations and is probably the most comprehensive text on neonatal cranial sonography. This second edition is a welcome update and will become a well-used reference because of the high quality of its imaging.'

Jay Goldsmith, MD, Tulane University School of Medicine

'This new updated version of the Atlas will undoubtedly become the most valuable handbook of neonatologists, neuroradiologists and trainees, not to mention its being a worthy addition to the library of all neonatal care rooms.'

Masayuki Itoh, Brain & Development, 2011

These, at times closely packed, 400-plus pages depict a remarkable body of experience and research by the authors and represent tribute to their willingness and undoubted commitment to communicate the collected wisdom from their work to the wider community, and thereby encourage best practice in patient care. It will be of considerable use to, and of interest and a source of reference for, antenatal and neonatal brain imagers and their neophytes and I would thereby commend it to them. The ingress of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into this ultrasound atlas is considerable and worthy of mention and also of welcome ñ not least given the depiction herein of MRI complementing ultrasound in the evaluation of many important conditions affecting the neonatal brain. We should endeavour to be just as aware of the measure(s) of the utility and limitations of neonatal MRI as we are with ultrasound!'

Tom Fitzgerald, Ultrasound, 2011

'Good things come to those who wait. It took 13 years until the 2nd edition of An Atlas of Neonatal Brain Sonography by Paul Govaert and Linda de Vries came out, but it was worth the wait. This comprehensive book on neonatal ultrasound was written by two experts in the field who have decades of clinical experience in neonatal neurology and imaging. Together, they have gathered high-quality ultrasound images of normal findings, all common neonatal brain diseases and a remarkable number of rare ones.'

Sandra Horsch, Acta Pediatrica, 2011

'This is an essential book for any neonatologist, paediatric neurologist, or radiologist to access when they come across unusual conditions. The book is not intended to be a primer on neonatal ultrasound, but is an invaluable reference work and as such is essential reading for those professionals mentioned above. It is unlikely that a better book than this will be published on neonatal brain sonography in the next few years.'
