The department of radiology at CHOP houses the Center of Pediatric Contrast Ultrasound (CPCU) with a proven record of effectively teaching the basic principles of contrast-enhanced US (ceUS) to pediatric radiologists, sonographers, and other clinicians since 2018. Clinically, our department has used contrast enhanced ultrasound since 2013, leading the way to FDA approval in 2016. In a collaboration with the Global Radiology Education and Outreach program, we propose a plan to accelerate our international educational and research collaboration to introduce this exciting new ultrasound technology in partner pediatric practices in Latin America.
