Sprengel’s deformity is the congenital failure of descent of the scapula. The diagnosis is based on a clinical examination and radiological procedures. Volume rendering three-dimensional computed tomography reconstructions analyze the precise topography and spatial proportions of examined bone structures. It enables an optional rotation of visualized bone structures to clarify the anatomical abnormalities. Ultrasound and magnetic resonance are useful in prenatal management and for the diagnosis of concomitant abnormalities. In this paper, we report our imaging experience from one child with Sprengel’s deformity and discuss the importance of imaging techniques with a particular focus on the role of three-dimensional reconstructions.
