Abstract

In this article, we review recent updates in the radiologic imaging of injuries to the pediatric skeleton. While part 1 focused on areas of weakness at cartilage–bone interfaces, part 2 focuses on other areas of the developing skeleton that are uniquely susceptible to injury. Over the past 5 years new and interesting research has helped us better understand the disease processes and how to image these “weak links.” These cartilage–bone interfaces are unique to the pediatric skeleton, and an understanding of this anatomy is critical in the performance and interpretation of pediatric musculoskeletal imaging examinations.
