Paediatric curriculum

The paediatric curriculum is one of our curriculum articles and aims to be a collection of articles that represent the core paediatric knowledge.

Topics pertaining to paediatric radiology, including paediatric neuroradiology and fetal radiology, although there will be some cross coverage within the CNS and obstetric curricula.

An understanding of the anatomy of relevant structures is essential. Core anatomical topics include:

Heart and greater vessels
MSK
GU

There are some key investigations that you will probably not come across anywhere else in radiology, and some that are significantly different in paediatric patients.

Plain films/fluoroscopy
Ultrasound
CNS
Chest
Heart and greater vessels
Musculoskeletal
Gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary
Genitourinary
Syndromes, associations and other important topics
