Abstract

As the pediatric population continues to increase its participation in organized athletics, there has been a corresponding increase in associated injuries. The lower extremity is the most frequently involved site in individuals age 5–18, representing about 60 % of all injuries. Children and adolescents are susceptible to injuries that differ from adults. The pelvis, knee, and ankle all present unique diagnostic challenges to the physician. MR can be helpful in the young athlete, as it can better demonstrate apophyseal, physeal, or soft tissue injury that might otherwise be unapparent or underestimated.
