The increasing use of ultrasound in the study of multiple parts of the body, has profoundly changed the diagnostic approach in numerous childhood clinical scenarios. Some technical aspects, such as minor thicknesses to go through and the lower fat content of tissues, make children optimal subjects for diagnostic ultrasound; exams are also well tolerated by young patients and appreciated by their parents, not painful or invasive and they do not need annoying preparations and/or sedation.
