Incidental findings abound on brain scans of the general pediatric population


Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

 Very scary - 1/4 of all children had a brain abnormality on MRI. Only 1/2 of 1% had something serious.   I am not sure what this means for the concept of routine screening for brain tumors.  The vast majority of abnormalities is nothing serious but might cause unnecessary surgery and worry.
