Reviews

This text by Elkhunovich and Kang provides a practical and logical step-by-step approach to paediatric ultrasound. Each examination is concisely divided into sections comprising scan indications, probe selection, technique and relevant ‘pearls’ to the examination of each body system. Images provided for all ultrasound examinations are of excellent quality, and several images of important abnormalities are also demonstrated to aid in the detection of pathology. The strength of this text lies in the step-by-step technique for imaging children alongside representative images of common findings. Concise bullet points emphasise key points to facilitate quick revision and retention, making this a good bedside reference text for use during routine work and prior to performing acute examinations. Overall, this book is an excellent, clinically relevant resource for all healthcare professionals new to imaging children, in addition to those more experienced operators seeking to refine their ultrasound technique.

This book covers commonly utilized point-of-care ultrasound exams in the pediatric population. Each section is subdivided into indications, probe selection, technique, and pearls and has bulleted lists of consistent, high-yield information followed by illustrations.  The book's main goal is to be a "learning tool and quick reference" for practitioners in emergent and non-emergent settings.Written for practitioners and trainees, particularly residents and fellows, in pediatric emergency medicine. This book covers common, high-yield exams used at the bedside by emergency medicine providers (i.e., FAST, ocular, gallbladder) as well as more advanced imaging (i.e., nerve blocks) and exams more commonly utilized in the pediatric population (i.e., intussusception, appendix). The chapters are brief and cover key points, with pictures of normal and abnormal findings that are easy to recognize and interpret. This  book offers a concise, easy-to-navigate, well-illustrated book that is ideal for an on-shift reference. Many emergency medicine ultrasound books do not dedicate enough information to the pediatric population. This guide covers the population well and fills that gap.
