Imaging Science book from C.H.I.P.S.

An Atlas of Neonatal Brain Sonography
Second edition
by Paul Govaert

An Atlas of Neonatal Brain Sonography covers the entire spectrum of brain disease as studied with ultrasound, illustrated throughout with superb-quality images.

This book is for neonatologists and radiologists confronted with everyday clinical questions on the neonatal ward.

Suggestions for differential diagnosis accompany all the sonographic findings, guiding the clinician in proceeding from an abnormal image to a diagnosis. This second edition 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 standardized and improved.
