Computed tomographic scanning in children

J Pediatr Surg. 1977 Dec;12(6):847-56. doi: 10.1016/0022-3468(77)90593-0.

Abstract

Computed tomographic scanning (CT) has been effectively utilized in evaluating the pediatric patient. Our experience with CT of the chest and abdomen in 19 patients has been described. The advantages offered by CT include: a unique anatomic display, the lack of morbidity, and an acceptable radiation dosage. Few technical disadvantages exist. Further application of this unique technique can be predicted.
