Paediatric Ultrasound

The state-of-art ultrasound and scanning equipment available at Motherhood Hospitals help to produce a clear picture of the internal organs and blood vessels within the abdomen of a child. At Motherhood Hospitals, Paediatric Ultrasound is performed with the best sonography equipment currently available.
A pediatric ultrasound is an examination of the child’s abdomen with the help of an ultrasound machine. The procedure involves an ultrasound gel and a small probe (transducer) that uses sound waves to produce an image. It is a non-invasive medical examination that helps our experts diagnose and treats abdominal pain and investigate other useful information about other organs such as liver and kidneys.
At Motherhood Hospitals, the Paediatric Ultrasound can be performed to examine the patient’s.

  • Uterus
  • Bladder
  • Pancreas
  • Liver
  • Appendix
  • Kidneys
  • Ovaries
  • Stomach/pylorus
  • Testicles
  • Intestines
  • Spleen
  • Gallbladder

These ultrasound images are essential to diagnose appendicitis in children. The doctors at Motherhood can also perform a paediatric ultrasound to:

  • Determine the causes of vomiting in young infants
  • Detect the cause and the presence of an apparently enlarged abdominal organ
  • Guide other procedures including biopsies
  • Identify the location of abnormal fluid in the abdomen

How should you prepare for an ultrasound exam?

To prepare for the procedure, your child is not allowed to eat and drink for at least 3 hours (for younger children) or 10 hours (for older children) before the procedure. Your child needs to wear a loose-fitting, comfortable dress during the whole process. Depending on the type of ultrasound, the assigned doctor may discuss the other details with you.

During the examination, your child needs to lie down on the back on a test table. The sonographer or radiologist at Motherhood Hospitals will spread a clear, water-based gel on the skin. Then, they press and move the probe back and forth to produce the desired image. Once the imaging is complete, the gel will be wiped off your child’s skin.
