Kids are different. They need special attention and dedicated tools. For pediatric patients with acute abdominal pain, ultrasound plays a critical role in the clinical pathway.
This eBook focuses on three examples of "ultrasound first" studies commonly encountered with pediatric patients presenting with acute abdominal pain such as pyloric stenosis, appendicitis, and mesenteric lymphadenitis.
You will learn about the symptoms and clinical presentations of these 3 conditions. The eBook also includes scanning tips, clinical images, and sonographer's best practices.
