The stomach is an essential organ in the first stages of digestion and also acts as a conduit between the esophagus and the small bowel. The pediatric stomach is subject to a number of congenital and acquired disorders. In this chapter we review the development of the stomach, the applied anatomy and the diagnostic imaging findings of gastric disorders.
