Detecting Pediatric Hip Dysplasia with ultrasound imaging can be very challenging due to the babies’ movements.
To help address this challenge, Canon Medical hosted a pre-ASA workshop on 20 June 2019, right before ASA 2019. It was a full packed event as sonographers listened to an array of very experienced speakers from Queensland Children's Hospital (Mr Tristan Reddan, Dr David Bade) and Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne (Mr Cain Brockley) who shared their valuable experience in Paediatric hip dysplasia diagnosis and management.
Jason Cotter, Canon Medical ANZ Ultrasound Manager, is giving a welcome speech - Early detection means early treatment.
Mr Tristan Reddan, Chief Sonographer of Queensland Children's Hospital, walked the sonographers through some infant hip imaging tips and tricks through live scanning on an Aplio i-seriess 800 system.
With Canon Medical’s premium scanner, sharp and clear images of fine hip details can be easily acquired, helping sonographers build the confidence in paediatric hip dysplasia diagnosis and treatment recommendation. Early detection means early treatment and this could spell a world of difference in the treatment of this condition.
