    Course Description
    Pediatric radiology of orthopedic problems comes with many challenges. Unlike adults, children cannot always understand a change of environment and may be scared, ill, or in pain, making the task of gaining the child’s trust and cooperation very important. Radiation differences between an adult and child require use of different equipment and settings for pediatric patients to reduce patient doses. The scope of orthopedic problems in children, and the need to achieve high-quality images to provide a diagnosis, emphasizes the importance of technologists having a full understanding of the scope of orthopedic abnormalities they may face in clinical practice and the use of the appropriate imaging modality for each. This review will cover some of the common and not-so-common orthopedic birth defects and trauma-related fractures in children and recommendations for imaging to provide high-quality studies while minimizing radiation exposure.

    Learning Objectives
    After reading this article, the participant should be able to:

    • Describe common orthopedic problems in children.
    • Explain the appropriate use of diagnostic imaging for common orthopedic problems in children.
    • List recent Choosing Wisely practices regarding performance of pediatric orthopedic imaging.
    • Define ways radiologic technologists can prevent unnecessary examinations and maximize achieving a diagnostic study.

Radiation differences between an adult and child require use of different equipment and settings for pediatric patients to reduce patient doses. The scope of orthopedic problems in children, and the need to achieve high-quality images to provide a diagnosis, emphasizes the importance of technologists having a full understanding of the scope of orthopedic abnormalities they may face in clinical practice and the use of the appropriate imaging modality for each.
