Ultrasound Applications in Pediatric ENT
with Dr. Elton Lambert
In this episode, Dr. Gopi Shah welcomes Dr. Elton Lambert, a pediatric otolaryngologist at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, to discuss the use of ultrasound in pediatric otolaryngology.
First, the surgeons delve into why ultrasound offers a precise and convenient method for diagnosing pathologies ranging from parotitis to vocal fold immobility in children. Dr. Lambert describes treating sialorrhea with ultrasound-guided Botox injections. From this point, the discussion transitions to the use of ultrasound for voice and airway issues. Use of ultrasound provides additional detail to complement (or occasionally replace) flexible scope exams in children with vocal cord immobility. The discussion finishes with Dr. Lambert’s pearls to successfully obtain and document ultrasound results.
