Abstract

This article reviews aspects of arthritis imaging that are specific to children. The pediatric skeleton is unique and responds in characteristic ways to articular inflammation. Epiphyseal and physeal cartilage are affected by joint diseases, and disturbances of growth and maturation are sometimes the cardinal manifestations of arthritis. The target joints of pediatric articular diseases differ considerably from those of diseases in adults. Imaging techniques should be tailored to the children being studied.
