Infants and children often present with respiratory symptoms referable to the airway. For these pediatric patients, airway imaging is frequently performed to evaluate for underlying disorders of the large airway. Various imaging modalities have been used to evaluate the pediatric large airway, and pediatric airway imaging techniques have continued to evolve. Therefore, clear understanding of the status and new advances in pediatric large airway imaging is essential for practicing radiologists to make timely and accurate diagnoses, which can lead to optimal pediatric patient management.
