Abstract

Musculoskeletal traumatic injuries in children demonstrate characteristic imaging findings. The physis is the most susceptible structure to traumatic injury. The periosteum in children plays a key role in rapid bone healing and stability. The main complications of fractures in children are premature physeal closure, potential limb length discrepancy, and angular deformities. Understanding the normal bone growth, healing, and complications of pediatric fractures is crucial for appropriate imaging diagnosis. This article discusses currently available imaging modalities with up-to-date techniques, underlying mechanisms, and characteristic imaging findings of musculoskeletal traumatic injuries and mimickers encountered in daily clinical practice.
