Bottom Line: Radiological practice includes classification of illnesses with similar characteristics through recognizable signs.In this report, twenty-eight important and frequently seen neuroradiological signs in childhood are presented and described using X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) images, illustrations and photographs.

f2-poljradiol-79-479: ”CT reversal sign” is observed due to diffuse cerebral anoxia in non-contrasted CT examination.

Mentions: The reversal sign is associated with diffuse anoxic-ischemic brain damage and almost always observed in children (Figure 2). This sign is characterized by a relative reversal of the attenuation between supra- and infratentorial structures. The grey-white matter distinction is lost and decreased, and there is a diffuse decrease in density in the cerebral grey and white matter. Thalami, brainstem, and cerebellum have a relatively increased density. It is closely related to child abuse, especially when accompanying intracranial bleeding [1,2].
