Abstract

In the management of the critically injured pediatric trauma patient, the diagnostic armamentarium of the clinician includes a number of radiographic procedures to assist in determining the life-threatening and disabling injuries of the young patient. This article reviews the emergent and definitive systems radiographs helpful in diagnosing blunt and penetrating injuries. The clinician is provided a stepwise systematic process of evaluating life-threatening and complicated injuries of the head, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities.
