Ultrasound, as the imaging choice, can provide clear images to help decide for or against surgery, thus saving time and patient stress. A new (German language) book* focusing on ultrasound diagnosis of the kidneys and urinary tract collection system in children, presents 23 cases, covering diseases that range from tract infection to varia. Ultrasound images are accompanied with brief disease descriptions and symptoms, as well as some preliminary diagnoses and therapeutic outcomes.

Heidi Heinhold, who reviewed the book for EH, concludes that radiologists or paediatricians who do not speak German could nonetheless gain worthwhile insights from this book.
