Need Second opinion on xray

Customer Question

Need Second opinion on xray
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Orthopedics
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I need to know from someone familiar with reading pediatric X-rays and the developing spine to tell me if there are any abnormalities where the arrows are pointing.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
if there are, what could they be attributed to if the child had not had any traumatic injury or complaint of pain or any indication of an injury? Could these be the growth plates?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

These seem to be fractures in all the locations where the arrows point to.

There are no growth plates in this area.
