What you'll learn

Ultrasound has become one of the essential diagnostic aids in the field of medicine due to increased abnormalities and defects in the organs. It uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the body on to the monitor. Ultrasound is a valuable imaging modality in the evaluating of the pediatric abdomen. Recent improvements in the ultrasound technician can be utilized to improve the detection of bowel pathology in children.

They can provide a real-time evaluation of the bowel without the need for sedation or intravenous contrast. Ultrasound is also valuable for evaluating unexplained abdominal pain in pediatric patients. It is generally indicated in the evaluation of appendicitis, intussusception, and pyloric stenosis.

This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric abdomen and assess the common pediatric pathologies. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that test your ability to perform an ultrasound examination of the pediatric abdomen.
