Abstract

We reviewed the ultrasound findings in 59 children suspected of having bone infection. Twenty-nine were eventually proved to have acute haematogenous osteomyelitis and 26 of these showed characteristic ultrasound findings. Such changes were rare in 30 patients with other clinically similar conditions. Ultrasound examination was also able to detect the presence of subperiosteal pus and thus indicate the need for surgical treatment.
