Ultrasound examination of the pediatric gastrointestinal tract is a relatively new technique. With recent advances in technology, it has become a valuable survey method, as well as the definitive method of diagnosis of problems in the stomach and small bowel of children, particularly neonates. Specific diagnoses of hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, gastroesophageal reflux, and obstructive disease can be obtained rapidly and repeatedly, if necessary, without concern for radiation exposure of the patient.
