This article lists examples of normal imaging of the pediatric patients divided by region, modality, and age.

  • CT chest: examples needed
  • ultrasound abdomen: example 1
  • ultrasound renal: example needed

  • MRI neck: example needed
  • thoracic spine radiograph
  • hip: examples needed
  • femur: examples needed
  • knee: examples needed
  • tibia and fibula: examples needed

Skeletal surveys are performed in cases of:

  • post-mortem before an autopsy in cases of suspected sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) to exclude traumatic skeletal injury or skeletal abnormalities indicative of an underlying naturally occurring disease
    • 4-month-old: example needed
    • new-born ('baby-gram'): example 1

Computed bone maturity (bone age) measurement are performed in cases of suspected growth delay or early pubertal development:

Computed tomography scanogram for leg length discrepancy assessment is performed in patients (children in most of the cases) with suspected inequality in leg length.
