The Pediatric Cerebellum

Suresh K. Mukherji, MD, MBA, FACR, Consulting Editor
This issue of the Neuroimaging Clinics is specifically devoted to the cerebellum and its disorders in children. There has been substantial progress in the understanding of the cerebellum over the last decade. This issue provides the reader with a comprehensive, yet concise update on the most recent advancements that will allow radiologists to play a larger role in management, prognosis, and counseling of the affected children and their families.

I would like to thank Drs Poretti and Huisman for creating such a unique and innovative issue. They have assembled a “world-class” group of authors whose contributions are outstanding. This issue discusses the important role of conventional and advanced neuroimaging techniques in the diagnosis of various cerebellar disorders in children. The articles cover the topics of embryogenesis, congenital malformations, metabolic disorders, vascular malformations, neoplasms, and infectious and inflammatory processes. There is also an article devoted to the role of the cerebellum in neurocognition and behavior.

Drs Poretti and Huisman have clearly succeeded in their goal of creating a detailed, up-to-date, and comprehensive body of information that can be used by both radiologists and clinicians for their daily practice and may stimulate scientific interest. This issue is already an instant “classic”!
