Complex ultrasound examination for children
The ultrasound examines the condition of internal organs and soft tissues. The examination is highly recommended for preventive health screenig or to track down unknown causes of complaints.
Many disorders in the early stage of development are otherwise not noticeable, so it is also advisable to carry out this screening for infants with no complaints.
This package includes:
- cranial ultrasound
- examination of the hips
- abdominal ultrasound
At this age, the soft spot on the skull is still open, allowing the brain to be examined. This is especially important for premature babies, as they may be at risk of pediatric stroke. It is also possible to check for signs of anatomical abnormalities, oxygen deprivation or infections in the brain that may have occurred during pregnancy. The hip is also one of the critical areas that should be examined, as an immature hip joint may later lead to hip dislocation. Early diagnosis is essential to receive the proper orthopedic treatment in time. When reviewing the abdominal organs, the radiologist is looking for any developmental abnormalities of the intestines, liver, spleen, kidneys, gall bladder and gonads. For boys with undescended testicles, the exact position of testicles in the abdominal cavity can be determined. It is also possible to check the proper functioning of the larger abdominal blood vessels.
The examination is recommended in case of the following symptoms or complaints
The examination is recommended for 6-8-week-old infants.
