Shortly after x-rays were discovered by Röntgen in 1895, the first radiographs of children were made. Since then, the growth of imaging has revolutionized the care of the fetus, infant and child. International Day of Radiology (IDoR) has become a yearly celebration, this year highlighting the work of pediatric radiology.

In this presentation, we will review the history of radiology, discuss current imaging modalities, as well as issues related to radiation safety and outreach. We will then describe future advances in pediatric imaging and speculate on how this specialty will continue to transform the care of the fetus and child.
