Исследования в педиатрии
Ultrasound is an imaging tool that is particularly well adapted to children because their organs are not very deep. However, conventional pediatric ultrasound exams are sometimes challenging to perform due to small structures that are hard to image, patient movement and/or the inability for young children to perform apnea.
To overcome these technical difficulties, Aixplorer has the answers. Aixplorer produces clinically detailed images with excellent spatial resolution for small structures. For children in constant movement, UltraFast™ Doppler makes vascular exams easier. UltraFast Doppler is the only mode to combine both Color Doppler and Pulsed Wave Doppler. A quick, three seconds of scanning renders retrospective, high quality flow information without compromises between frame rate and field of view and immediate full quantitative spectral Doppler flow analysis. UltraFast Doppler is also very useful to detect and characterize small vessels. To ensure workflow ease, this analysis can also be performed without requiring the patient to be present.
In addition, Aixplorer’s real-time ShearWave™ Elastography can also be used with children to image tissue elasticity in kilopascals. ShearWave Elastography can image liver stiffness even without apnea required and through very small intercostal spaces, or epigastrically, making the pediatric diagnostic process easier (more manageable).
