Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the characteristic thoracic multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) findings of pathologically proven inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the lung in children in the era of modern understanding based on refined pathologic diagnosis.
Materials And Methods: All pediatric patients (age 18 y and above) with a known pathologic diagnosis of IMT of the lung who underwent thoracic MDCT studies from May 2008 to December 2020 were included.
