RC708A - Conventional Radiography and CT of Pediatric Fractures
Learning Objectives: 1) Understand how fractures of the immature skeleton differ from those in the mature skeleton. 2) Recognize the configuration of particularly subtle pediatric fractures, such as those at the elbow. 3) Be familiar with the indications and techniques for computed tomography of pediatric fractures.

RC708B - MR of Pediatric Musculoskeletal Injuries
Learning Objectives: 1) Review the signal characteristics of the normal growing skeleton, and the appearance of normal variants with emphasis on findings that need to be differentiated from traumatic injuries. 2) Describe the main types of injury in each group with the characteristic MR imaging findings. 3) Discuss technical factors which are necessary to optimize MR imaging in the injured child.

 
RC708C - Imaging Child Abuse
Learning Objectives: 1) Learn the imaging patterns of inflicted skeletal injuries and their respective specificities for the diagnosis of child abuse. 2) Gain familiarity with the diseases, accidental injuries and normal variants which may simulate abuse. 3) Learn the ACR protocol for skeletal surveys in suspected child abuse.
