Paediatric infectious diseases is a large spectrum of pathologies with different prognosis and management; there are many different radiological instruments, but not always available depending on the geographic contest. Also the lack of a universally accepted standardization of protocol still determine different diagnostic iter. Definitive diagnosis cannot be made on the basis of imaging features alone, just a combination of clinical and radiographic findings can substantially improve the accuracy of diagnosis. Future challenges include a greater insight into the appropriate timing and indication of imaging studies and standardization of protocols. There are many different economic, social and geographic factors that influence the care, but ideally children should be treated in the same best accepted way all over in the world (Figure 15) the diagnostic iter should be improved and standardized. The correct use of imaging tools throughout the development of guidelines optimizes the results in detecting and treating lung infections in children.
