The Pediatric Cervical Spine Clearance Working Group, a subgroup of the Pediatric Cervical Spine Study Group, created a consensus statement for pediatric cervical spine clearance. They defined pediatric cervical spine clearance as “the process by which a child with a suspected CSI undergoes clinical evaluation (history and physical examination) and, in select cases, is evaluated by diagnostic imaging to determine that a CSI has not occurred.” The Work Group used the consensus statement to develop an algorithm to guide protocols for cervical spine clearance. This algorithm is presented as a Figure in the document.
