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