Pediatric Chest Ultrasound-beyond Pleural Effusion-pictorial Review

Purpose or Case Report: Sonography is well established, effective and radiation free imaging tool in pediatric chest conditions, primarily and widely used for evaluation of pleural effusions and assessment of chest wall abnormalities. Beyond that, it can also provide valuable information in evaluation of congenital abnormalities, anatomical variations, infectious process and malignancies in the chest.
Methods & Materials: We retrospectively reviewed and identified patients who underwent a chest ultrasound examination and then correlated the findings with their available radiographic and/or cross sectional imaging findings and also surgical and pathology results.
Results: Our review illustrates a wide spectrum of congenital, infectious and neoplastic abnormality including pathology involving the mediastinum, lung parenchyma, diaphragm and pleura.
Conclusions: Sonography can provide useful information and often final diagnosis about various chest pathology, especially in the pediatric population with reduction in the need for more invasive investigations, also utilization of sedation and/or ionizing radiation.
