Radiopaedia.org is a rapidly growing, open-edit radiology resource, compiled by radiologists and other health professionals from across the globe.
Radiopaedia’s mission is to create the best radiology reference the world has ever seen and to make it available for free, for ever, for all.
For an outstanding resource on Pediatric Radiology, please review Pediatric radiography from Radiopaedia:
Pediatric radiography is a subset within general radiography specializing in the radiographic imaging of the pediatric population.
The general principles of radiography remain the same. However, additional consideration needs to be taken into account when determining patient-specific exposure factors, immobilization techniques and appropriateness of examinations.
Due to the differences between pediatric radiography and adult imaging, separate general pediatric articles have been broken into anatomical sub-sections.
