New York/Stuttgart – “Radiographic Atlas of Skeletal Maturation,” recently published by Thieme, enables physicians dealing with the maturing skeleton and its complex maturation to quickly hone in on what is “normal” for the specific case they are reviewing, which can be particularly useful when called upon to read a pediatric skeletal radiograph in the emergency room or while on call.

“The value of this atlas is to provide appropriate standards for the maturing skeleton {that} will enhance accuracy and ease interpretation…” -- From the Foreword by Theodore E. Keats, MD, Former Alumni Professor of Radiology, University of Virginia Health Sciences Center

This unique resource, with its vast collection of print and DVD images of normal progressive skeletal development, gives physicians the full range of comparative information they need to interpret pediatric skeletal radiographs in any clinical setting. The images start at birth and then go to three months, six months, nine months, one year, fifteen months, eighteen months, twenty-one months, two years, three years, four years, and then one year increments until age twenty-one. In addition, the images were reviewed by three CAQed pediatric radiologists who declared them to be normal, which provides an excellent point of reference for the reader.

This book is the reference standard for radiologists, pediatricians, orthopedists, and emergency room physicians who are called upon to review a pediatric radiograph.
