Abstract

Echocardiography is an extraordinarily useful imaging technique in fetuses, infants, children, and adolescents. Recent technologic innovations have expanded its versatility in the pediatric population. However, limited societal resources, limitations inherent to ultrasound imaging, and numerous imaging options even within the field of pediatric echocardiography necessitate the discriminate and thoughtful use of echocardiography in children. The clinical assessment remains a critical prelude to echocardiographic examination of the pediatric cardiovascular system.
