Abstract

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