Advances in radiologic imaging of neonatal airway disorders

Jessica Kurian Joseph, David A. Mong, Monica Epelman

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Radiology of the airways in newborns and infants is challenging due the small size of their anatomy, their inability to follow breathing instructions, and the concern for long-term effects of radiation exposure. While some patients can be managed with observation or empiric therapy, for other patients the diagnosis may remain uncertain, and imaging is an essential part of management. Radiology serves to detect airway abnormalities, guide therapy, assist with preoperative planning, and help avoid invasive testing.
