Recent acquisitions in imaging diagnosis of digestive disorders in children
Elastography is a new imaging method based on ultrasounds, which allows the assessment of the tissues structure in terms of their stiffness, being useful in the exploration of different organs and systems, having more and more clinical applications. The development of the contrast agents of second generation led to the amplification of the ultrasound signals using the microbubbles, which can not cross the vascular wall and are eliminated through exhalation within 15 minutes.
Material and methods. We present the results of a prospective study conducted in our Clinic, assessing the performance of the ARFI method (”Acustic Radiation Force Imaging”) in the assessment of the liver elasticity in children and we present some pediatric cases in which the ultrasound with contrast has brought real benefits, making it easier to diagnose and facilitate optimal therapeutic decisions.
