Computed tomography is a useful imaging modality in infants and children for evaluating pelvic lesions suggested by conventional imaging procedures. Computed tomography can provide anatomic information about abnormalities of the viscera as well as the musculoskeletal structures. Characterization of a lesion as well as determination of its extent is possible by computed tomography. Computed tomography is especially valuable in visualizing the presacral space, in the follow-up of patients with malignant neoplasms and in localizing impalpable testes.
