Riassunto analitico
Many unique features of the growing skeleton pose specific challenges in
imaging skeletal trauma. Differences in the composition and development of
the pediatric skeleton (as compared with adults) result in characteristic injuries
and fractures. The imaging of these injuries typically begins with plain films,
and most cases require no further radiologic evaluation. However, several other
imaging modalities may be used in certain cases, depending on the clinical
history, physical examination and initial radiologic studies. Computed
tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the most
frequently used adjunctive imaging studies performed in pediatric patients with
suspected skeletal trauma.
