How and where we seek information differ today from 1945, when  the  first  edition  of Caffey’s  Pediatric X-Ray  Diagnosis was published. There was no Internet, Google, or PubMed; you  could  make  a  Photostat of  an  article,  but  no  Xerox machines existed yet. Journals of the day contained the latest research,  but the synthesis  of  that  knowledge  with  practical experience  came  in  the  form  of  the  textbook. Historically, the landmark textbooks were written by the most influential leaders in their fields and were usually solo efforts (one can speculate whether ego or difficulties of collaboration played the greater part). A small number of valuable and influential texts have outlived their creators, evolving over years through the efforts  of  new  authors  and  editors.  Sir  William Osler’s The Principles and Practice of Medicine was published from 1892 to  2001;  Sir  Vincent  Zachary  Cope’s Early  Diagnosis  of the Acute  Abdomen, currently  in  its  twenty-second  edition,  first appeared  in  1921.  Other  such  venerable  texts still being published  include  Harrison’s Principles  of  Internal  Medicine(1950), Nelson’s Textbook of Pediatrics(1945), and Goodman & Gilman’s The  Pharmacological  Basis  of  Therapeutics (1941). 
Caffey’s Pediatric Diagnostic Imaginghas also proven its lasting value and importance over almost six decades.
But  how  we  collect,  store,  and  access  information  has changed.  Even  the  most  technophobic  among us  obtains information  regularly  via  electronic  means.  For  those  of  us fond  of  our  computers  and mobile  devices,  we  can  indulge in  a  deluge  of  data  at  any  time  or  location.  The  ability  to find information  and  answers  to  specific  questions  is  a  tremendous benefit to medical care and education. The quality of  the  information  retrieved  online,  however,  is  sometimes unclear.  Further,  freely available  Internet  content  is  often truncated and condensed to suit a culture of shortened attention span. How well are subtleties or syntheses conveyed by a single screen page summary or bullet point list? As we learn more about the science of education, what is the best method of presenting information to learners both young and old?
Are  books  such  as  this  one  still  relevant?  Clearly,  I  have a somewhat biased viewpoint. I believe that well-constructed prose  from  an  author  with  expert  knowledge  and  practical real-world  experience, coupled  with  illustrative  images  and diagrams, is a powerful and efficient way to transmit information and facilitate  learning.  Lists  of  facts  and  bullet  point paragraphs cannot conveymore complex concepts and syntheses.  No  matter  what  the  medium,  content  counts.  And books such as this one have tremendously valuable content.
That said, there is ongoing debate as to the best medium in which to disseminate complex and comprehensive content. Books are simple to use. They are familiar. It is easy to flip from  section  to  section,  to  go  back  a  few  pages  without losing your place. You can take notes in the margins. Books can also be heavy and cumbersome. They are costly to manufacture. Electronic formats have their pros and cons as well. A  light,  portable  laptop  or  tablet  may  contain  thousands  of books’ worth of information. Images can be manipulated as in  actual  practice.  Video  and  animations  can  augment  the  learning experience. Online texts can be accessed anywhere with  an  Internet  connection.  Content  length need  not  be dictated  by  physical  page  limitations.  However,  the  device screen  size  dictates  and somewhat  limits  the  amount  and method  of  information  display.  Moving  back  and  forth between content sections can be awkward.The  twelfth  edition  of  this  text  reflects  the  conflict  and state  of  flux  in  publishing.  There  is  a  physical  book.  There are  more  explanatory  diagrams  and  illustrations  with  better use  of  color,  and  I  have  tried  to  continue  the  work  of  Dr. Slovis  in  updating  and  improving  the  images.  This  edition adds a significant online and electronic presence. Additional images, animations, and videos are available online to supplement the print volume and to allow those who prefer electronic media totake advantage of the material in an alternate way.
The authors and section editors have contributed significant updates regarding newer imaging modalities, theunderstanding of disease processes, imaging appropriateness, and the importance  of  minimizing  radiation exposure.  As  with  the last edition, there has been input from many clinical specialists, providing perspective on the important role of imaging in the care of children. The authors and section editors have my thanks.
I would like to thank the team at Elsevier. Rebecca Gaertner  and  Kristina  Oberle  helped  to  get  this  edition  started. Maureen  Iannuzzi  and  Don  Scholz  were  my  main  partners in  this  project.  I  especially  appreciate  Maureen’s  hard  work in keeping us on task and her sense of humor. Carrie Stetz oversaw the layout and proof part of the production, helping to give the book its updated look.
I hope that this twelfth edition of Caffey is helpful to you and to the patients you serve

Since 1945, radiologists have turned to Caffey's Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging for the most comprehensive coverage and unparalleled guidance in all areas of pediatric radiology. Continuing this tradition of excellence, the completely revised 12th edition – now more concise yet still complete – focuses on the core issues you need to understand new protocols and sequences, and know what techniques are most appropriate for given clinical situations. "This text will obviously be of great interest not only to radiologists, also to those who work with children including all pediatric specialties. It is also extremely useful in countries with resource poor setting where there is shortage of well-trained radiologists in pediatric specialties." Reviewed by: Yangon Children Hospital on behalf of the Journal of the European Paediatric Neurology Society, January 2014

"This is a thoroughly up-to-date text, divided into manageable topics, at a very reasonable price and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who needs updating in the field of paediatrics or paediatric imaging." RAD, February 2014

  • Determine the best modality for each patient with state-of-the art discussions of the latest pediatric imaging techniques.
  • Quickly grasp the fundamentals you need to know through a more precise, streamlined format, reorganized by systems and disease processes, as well as "Teaching Boxes" that highlight key points in each chapter.
  • Apply all the latest pediatric advances in clinical fetal neonatology techniques, technology, and pharmacology.
  • Achieve accurate diagnoses as safely as possible. Increased coverage of MRI findings and newer imaging techniques for all organ systems emphasizes imaging examination appropriateness and safety.
  • Reap the fullest benefit from the latest neuroimaging techniques including diffusion tensor imaging, fMRI, and susceptibility weighted imaging.
  • Keep current with the latest pediatric radiological knowledge and evidence-based practices. Comprehensive updates throughout include new and revised chapters on prenatal imaging; newer anatomic and functional imaging techniques (including advances in cardiac imaging); disease classifications and insights into imaging disease processes; and advanced imaging topics in neurological, thoracoabdominal, and musculoskeletal imaging.
  • Compare your findings to more than 10,000 high-quality radiology images.
  • Access the full text online at Expert Consult including illustrations, videos, and bonus online-only pediatric imaging content.
