Abstract

The thoracic region in pediatric patients poses unique diagnostic and interventional challenges, necessitating specialized approaches in radiological imaging and procedures. This review provides an overview of the key considerations, techniques, and clinical significance in the field of pediatric thoracic radiology and interventions. We discuss the importance of age-appropriate imaging modalities and the application of advanced technologies in assessing a wide range of thoracic conditions in children, including congenital anomalies, infections, neoplasms, and trauma. Furthermore, we highlight the evolving role of minimally invasive interventional procedures in the management of pediatric thoracic disorders. As the understanding of pediatric thoracic pathology continues to expand, this review aims to guide healthcare professionals, radiologists, and pediatricians in delivering optimal care to children with thoracic concerns.
