Chest CT for the Diagnosis of Pediatric Esophageal Foreign Bodies.

Curr Probl Diagn Radiol 2021 Mar 8. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Singleton Department of Pediatric Radiology, Texas Children's Hospital, Houston TX.; Department of Radiology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston TX.. Electronic address:

Foreign body ingestion is a common problem in children. Radiography is the mainstay of imaging, but many radiolucent items go undetected without further imaging by fluoroscopic esophagram. While studies in adults support the use of computed tomography (CT) for esophageal foreign body ingestion, CT has historically not been used in children given the typically higher radiation doses on CT compared with fluoroscopy.

From the Department of Radiology, Medical College of Wisconsin, 9200 W Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53226.

Esophageal emergencies such as rupture or postoperative leak are uncommon but may be life threatening when they occur. Delay in their diagnosis and treatment may significantly increase morbidity and mortality. Causes of esophageal injury include iatrogenic (including esophagogastroduodenoscopy and stent placement), foreign body ingestion, blunt or penetrating trauma to the chest or abdomen, and forceful retching, also called Boerhaave syndrome.
