Understanding Blood Flow in the Liver to Save Children's Lives
Description: Liver transplantation is the only definite cure for patients with terminal liver diseases. Every patient that receives a liver transplant is routinely assessed using Doppler ultrasound due to its safety, availability, and effectiveness to monitor the newly reinstalled liver. However, there is a catch; while some Doppler ultrasound findings are easy to interpret, the meaning of other parameters is less well understood, especially in children. Dr. Ruiz will present her latest research focused on the role of Doppler ultrasound after a liver transplant in children.
