Chicago, IL – January, 2018 – The National Certification Corporation (NCC) is pleased to announce the release of their new publication Neonatal Imaging ISBN 978-0-9890198-2-8.
Written by Pediatric radiologists, this full-size, 292 page book has over 300 annotated images. The authors have provided readers with a detailed understanding of imaging, specific to the neonate. Their dedication and commitment to the field is evident in each chapter.
Neonatal Imaging discusses the basic principles of common neonatal imaging studies, the pathophysiology of pertinent diseases, and the challenges in reading and evaluating findings. It was written as a resource for skilled clinicians and as a learning tool for students and new providers.
Edited by NCC's Executive Director, Robin Bissinger, PhD, APRN, NNP-BC, FAAN and Meryle J. Eklund, MD, Assistant Professor of Radiology and Pediatrics, Department of Radiology and Radiological Science at the Medical University of South Carolina, NCC’s new publication Neonatal Imaging provides a foundation for neonatal health care providers; to understand techniques, artifacts and positioning, to relate detailed pathology and interpretation of neonatal radiologic & sonographic images and to differentiate between normal and abnormal findings verses artifact. This book creates a framework for neonatal imaging, providing both basic and challenging issues when reading and interpreting neonatal x-rays & ultrasounds.
Neonatal Imaging is a visual learning experience, providing detailed pathology through imaging illustrations and includes over 300 annotated images. Each chapter gives a brief overview of the pathology of disease and provides an in-depth discussion of the concepts and systematic approach to the imaging studies.
Neonatal Imaging is broken down into 4 major sections that include the Chest, Abdomen, Head and Renal Systems. Each system is outlined with the specific studies often needed for this patient population. This book includes positioning, techniques, lines and tubes, as well as an understanding of artifacts. All of which must be taken into account when interpreting these studies.
