We report two children who sustained traumatic parenchymal splenic injury and were monitored with contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS). In both cases, unenhanced US failed to diagnose splenic haematoma, but the injury was well demonstrated after injection of contrast agent. In one case agreement with CT was excellent; in the other, CT was not performed due to the comprehensive information provided by CEUS.
