Despite being recognized as a secondary sign of appendicitis, no clear definition exists about the amount of intra-abdominal fluid considered physiologic in children. The purpose is (1) to assess the amount of intra-abdominal free fluid by US and MRI in children with suspected appendicitis, (2) to detect the performance characteristics of US for detecting free fluid, and (3) to determine the association between fluid volume and perforated appendicitis. An additional ex-vivo study was done to assess the validity of US measurement abdominal free fluid volume using phantoms. Read More

Haemophilic arthropathy is caused by recurrent bleeding into joint. The first bleeding episodes usually occurs in knee and ankles between 1 and 3 years old. In the pediatric patients with haemophilia, it is important to detect the joint damage as soon as possible because appropriate prophylaxis is provided. Ultrasonography is increasingly used for joint assessment recently. The purpose of this study is to present clinical importance of joint evaluation by the ultrasonography in the pediatric patients with haemophilia. Read More

Prenatal screening and diagnosis of fetal anomalies rely upon ultrasound studies (US). US is generally considered safe during pregnancy. It is estimated that 1% of all neonates are born with a congenital heart defect that makes careful standardized examination of the fetal heart a mandatory step during all fetal US exams. US examination of the fetal heart requires at least analysis of the fetal situs, the four-chamber (4CH) view and the three-vessel view (3V). In the evaluation of the fetal heart, it is now worldwide accepted that the three-vessel trachea (3VT) view should be obtained, if technically feasible, in supplement of the other classical fetal cardiac views (4CH, 3V).

The relevance of adding the 3VT view is that some congenital cardiovascular abnormalities, potentially significant for fetal outcome, can only be diagnosed with this view; these malformations include vascular rings and right aortic arches.

Ultrasonography is a very powerful non-invasive diagnostic tool widely employed for examining multiple organs and systems located both superficially and deeply. This is possible thanks to a wide range of transducers that work on different frequencies and sound lengths to explore all layers of anatomical structures. Nowadays, the reduction of exposure to ionizing radiation in children is advocated by the “as low as reasonably achievable” (ALARA) principle, and therefore, ultrasound (US) has become the main investigation tool in many assessments of lung pediatric disorders. The purpose of this educational exhibit is to describe the normal artefacts produced by LUS in a healthy lung to distinguish them from pathologic patterns and the application of LUS in pediatric diseases and procedures (ultrasound-Guided Lung Recruitment).

Hip ultrasonography is now considered the main method for screening, diagnosing and monitoring the treatment of development dysplasia of hip (DDH) in children, considering the advantages of the method and the excellent characterization of the anatomical elements of the infant hip which, at this stage of life, consists largely of cartilage. In 1980, Reinhard Graf, an Austrian pediatric orthopedist published child hip study work from about 20,000 stillbirths. He evaluated and studied through hip ultrasound the hip joint and determined in a single coronal section the hip classification. The purpose of this article is to explain in a didactic and detailed way the method of Graf, focusing on the reference points for its realization and proper interpretation. Read More
