Abstract

Anatomic variants are common incidental findings in pediatric chest imaging and can be mistaken for true underlying pathology, sometimes resulting in unnecessary additional imaging evaluation or invasive procedures. Clear understanding of the imaging characteristics and clinical significance of anatomic thoracic variants is important for accurate diagnosis and avoidance of unnecessary intervention. This article provides an up-to-date review of anatomic variants in the pediatric chest to increase knowledge and aide in timely, correct diagnosis.
