The Center for Pediatric Contrast Ultrasound (CPCU) Workshops
The Center for Pediatric Contrast Ultrasound (CPCU) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was officially inaugurated on the 20th of September 2018 at a ceremony marking the generous donation for the center by Bracco Diagnostics Inc. The Center was established with the mission to advance the clinical practice, research and education in pediatric contrast US. The Center encompasses the Divisions of Body Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology and the Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Pediatrics. Contrast US at CHOP was started in 2013 and now the pediatric contrast indications are very wide including intravenous (brain, abdomen, MSK etc.), intracavitary (contrast enhanced voiding urosonography and genitography), intralymphatic (MR lymphangiography guidance) as well as many applications in interventional radiology. Both clinical and basic science contrast US research is expanding with the support from multiple grants. The CPCU had carried out 13 hands-on pediatric contrast US workshop since April 2017 and trained over a 100 physicians and sonographers from 34 different centers in North America. Out of the 34 centers already 20 are now performing pediatric contrast US with 7 in the process to do so. Enclosed you will find detailed information about the CPCU as well as about the hands-on courses.
