This book presents a comprehensive, state-of the-art guide and review of ultrasound applications for children and infants
with surgical problems. It is meant as a single source to provide information about sonographic application, interpretation
and technique for a diversity of pediatric surgical care providers, making it a useful tool for the ultrasound novice as well
as the more advanced ultrasonographer. Sections address initial obstacles faced by a physician starting with ultrasound such
as the scanning techniques, underlying anatomy and normal sonographic findings. The initial chapter provides an introduction
and basic overview about ultrasound theory and techniques. Subsequent chapters focus on specific body parts and systems and
their disease processes as it pertains to pediatric and neonatal patients. The text also includes a chapter on abdominal trauma
and its evaluation with the FAST (focused abdominal sonography for trauma) exam.
Diagnostic and Interventional
Ultrasound in Pediatric Surgery serves as a useful resource for a broad spectrum of pediatric care providers, including a
growing number of ultrasound users, surgeons and pediatricians alike.
