    Pediatric Imaging

    Summary

    My research uses ultrasound to image the hip and shoulder joints of young children to evaluate and guide treatment for abnormal development of the joint. If not treated at a young age, abnormal development of these joints leads to significant long-term disabilities.

    Current Projects
    • Evaluating the effectiveness of hip ultrasound as a screening study for developmental hip dysplasia in infants with risk factors for hip dysplasia but no abnormal findings on physical examination.
    • Evaluating role of shoulder ultrasound to assess treatment and prevention of shoulder dysplasia in infants with Birth Related Brachial Plexus Injury.
    • Evaluating role of imaging studies in investigation of renal masses in infants and correlating imaging findings with pathologic findings.
