Quality in an abdominal ultrasound ??

Recommended Posts

As far as the actual running of the machines, I would think the technicians would be comparable. In my experience, it is who is reading the results who counts. With my dd10, we wanted a pediatric radiologist reading the results because a young body can look and respond differently. We also wanted a pediatric environment for comfort reasons - they are equipped to calm an anxious child. But a 17 year old would be on the fence for me. Her body should be more like an adult's body and probably wouldn't need the pediatric expertise. And if she isn't especially anxious about it, I wouldn't feel like the Children's hospital was necessary.
