Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(12):471-476.   Published online December 31, 2016
Purpose

Chest radiography is often performed on patients hospitalized with typical clinical manifestations of bronchiolitis. We aimed to determine the proportion of subjects with pathologic chest radiographic findings and the clinical predictors associated with pathologic chest radiographic findings in young children admitted with the typical presentation of bronchiolitis.

Methods

We obtained the following data at admission: sex, age, neonatal history, past history of...

Kyong Ok Lee, Se Jin Park, Jae Il Shin, Suk Young Lee, Kee Hyuck Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(5):181-184.   Published online May 21, 2012

Voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) is a commonly performed diagnostic procedure for the evaluation of vesicoureteral reflux with urinary tract infection or congenital renal diseases in children. The procedure is relatively simple and cost-effective, and complications are very rare. The iatrogenic complication of VCUG range from discomfort, urinary tract infection to bacteremia, as well as bladder rupture. Bladder rupture is a rare...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(3):123-127.   Published online March 31, 2011
Purpose

Kawasaki disease (KD) is the main cause of acquired heart disease in children. In addition to cardiovascular involvement, many complications have been recognized in KD. However, respiratory complications have been rarely reported. We investigated the differences in clinical characteristics, laboratory findings, radiography findings, and echocardiography findings of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection and other types of pneumonia in KD patients.

Methods

Among 358 patients...

Purpose : We aimed to evaluate the abnormalities of chest radiographs including atelectasis in children who were admitted with bronchial asthma. Methods : We retrospectively analyzed the 357 chest radiographs and the clinical and laboratory features of the 144 children with asthma, who were admitted at Daejoen St. Mary's Hospital from April 1994 to May 1998. Results : Clinical and laboratory...

Byoung Min Choi, Young Kwan Park, Kee Hwan Yoo, Young Sook Hong, Joo Won Lee, Soon Kyum Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(12):1650-1659.   Published online December 15, 1998
Purpose : This study was performed to observe the utilization of ultrasonography in locating the position of UAC and to compare the position with anatomical landmarks seen on radiography. Methods : Optimal position is when the catheter tip is located between T6-T10 or L3-L5 by anteroposterior radiography(AP-R) and above the diaphragm by cross-table lateral radiography(CTL-R). Ultrasonographic studies used a Hewlett Packard...
