[Abstract] The "Health China 2030" outlines is focusing on the whole population and the whole life cycle for building a healthy China, strengthening health services for key populations and improving maternal and child health. MRI is a non-invasive, non-ionizing radiation imaging method with good soft tissue contrast, is playing an irreplaceable role in the diagnosis of pediatric diseases. With the improvement of equipment, technological development and innovative research of radiologists, pediatric MRI in China has entered a high-speed development stage in the past ten years. MRI has achieved excellent results in fetal MRI, pediatric central nervous system MRI, pediatric chest MRI, pediatric abdominal MRI, pediatric musculoskeletal MRI and artificial intelligence (AI), providing reference information and playing an important value for the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric diseases and prognosis assessment. The future of pediatric MRI: (1) To further optimize the sequence of pediatric MRI examination, reduce the scanning time and improve the compliance of pediatric MRI examination, and develop pediatric-specific MRI, pediatric-specific receiving coilto achieve safe and high-contrast silent scanning for infants and children; (2) To establish the MRI database and related standard values or intervals for normal children in China as soon as possible; (3) To carry out multi-center collaborative research and jointly compile the Expert Consensus Series on MRI for Pediatric Disease Spectrum in China actively; (4) To conduct MRI research in key areas such as birth defects, fetus and placenta, pediatric brain science, pediatric tumor, and genetic metabolism; (5) To actively engaged in research and clinical promotion of pediatric MRI AI. The purpose of this review is to summarize the achievements of pediatric MRI in China in the past ten years, analyze the current situation, identify gaps, and propose future directions to promote high-quality development of pediatric imageology in China.
