Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to provide an up-to-date review of the radiographic appearance of the most commonly used thoracic lines and tubes in pediatric patients in daily clinical practice. CONCLUSION. Thoracic support lines and tubes are frequently used in children receiving hospital care. Evaluation of these devices is a fundamental skill in radiology. Many different devices are currently used, and new devices are regularly introduced. It is essential for radiologists to maintain a clear understanding of all devices currently in use.
