Radiation risk to children from computed tomography. If your child received some form of sedation for the exam, you and your child will stay in the department for a recovery period and will be given instructions on any limitations in activity for the day.
In the last decade improvements in CT equipment have allowed for better images at lower doses. If this is the case, or if you suspect that your child may be getting sick, you should talk with your physician about rescheduling the CT exam.
However, a recent study found a direct association between pediatric CT and increased risk of both leukemia and brain cancer of similar magnitude as the Life Span Study, providing additional evidence of the validity of applying these cancer risk projections to doses from CT imaging.
complications from infections such as pneumonia• Encounter diagnoses were categorized using the all patient-refined diagnosis related groups APR-DRGsa standardized method of classifying patients into 1 of 311 clinically relevant groups, according to International Classification of Diseases ICD diagnosis codes, severity of illness, and mortality risk.
Scientific Discovery and the Future of Medicine• Results: The distribution of sex, race, and Glasgow Coma Scale GCS score was not significantly different between Computerized tomography in clinical pediatrics adult and pediatric populations; however, the distribution of CT findings was significantly different.
We constructed groups of generalized linear models with a random effect for hospital, evaluating the independent association of relevant covariates with our primary outcomes of modes of advanced imaging first group and with secondary outcome measures of ED LOS, hospitalization, and revisit rates second group.
The risks observed in the study described above were consistent with those previous estimates. In children, CT is typically used to diagnose causes of abdominal pain, evaluate for injury after trauma, diagnose and stage cancer, monitor response to treatment for cancer, and diagnose and monitor infectious or inflammatory disorders. 4 Aruvant Biotech, New York, NY, United States of America.

The use of CT increased between 1996 and 2005, remained stable between 2005 and 2007, and then began to decline.
