Abstract

Osteoarticular ultrasound, a well established technique in adults, appears to be very useful also in children because of the non ossification of cartilaginous structures, the possibility to avoid sedation and irradiation, and hence the use of scanner and MRI will be reduced. This is a review of the clinical applications of musculoskeletal ultrasound in the pediatric population. Pictorial examples of cases collected between January 2003 and December 2006 of different pathologies encountered in Lebanon are displayed with a discussion of congenital malformations, traumatic lesions, inflammatory and infectious lesions, bone dystrophy and dysplasia, metabolic and tumoral lesions.
