Chest X-ray in Neonates and Children

by Swapan K Ray

This book focuses on chest X-ray in neonates and children. Chest x-ray uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the chest. It is used to evaluate the lungs, heart and chest wall and may be used to help diagnose shortness of breath, persistent cough, fever, chest pain or injury. This book consists of five chapters, which include basics of pediatric chest X-ray, step by step interpretation, miliary shadows, pulmonary space occupying lesion, and chest X-ray in neonates. Contrary to the adults, children often are very much reluctant and apprehended to undergo radiological tests for fear and phobia of men and machine. This book tried to make interpretation in a simpler and structured way, so that postgraduate trainees should not miss relevant findings. Even the practicing pediatricians will find ease in interpreting pediatric chest X-rays.
