Ultrasound-guided Interventions in Children

Matthew P Lungren et al. Eur J Radiol.

Abstract

There are a variety of available imaging modalities used for minimally invasive procedures in children, however, among the most frequently used is ultrasound (US). The advantages of US are vast and include real-time visualization, lack of ionizing radiation, and all-around versatility. US is also inexpensive, portable and widely available. In general US guided procedures in children have applications in nearly every aspect of medical therapy. Properly trained practitioners with US imaging experience and detailed knowledge of the relevant anatomy provide an invaluable service to the care of pediatric patients in many centers. This paper will discuss many of the image guided procedures that are performed in children and offer practical techniques from the collective experience of our practice at a large pediatric tertiary care center.
