Emerging manifestations of artificial intelligence (AI) have featured prominently in virtually all industries and facets of our lives. Within the radiology literature, AI has shown great promise in improving and augmenting radiologist workflow. In pediatric imaging, while greatest AI inroads have been made in musculoskeletal radiographs, there are certainly opportunities within thoracoabdominal MRI for AI to add significant value. In this paper, we briefly review non-interpretive and interpretive data science, with emphasis on potential avenues for advancement in pediatric body MRI based on similar work in adults. The discussion focuses on MRI image optimization, abdominal organ segmentation, and osseous lesion detection encountered during body MRI in children.
