Assoc. Prof. Dr. Utairat Chaumrattanakul
Department of Radiology, Thammasat University Hospital
Ultrasound Imaging for Pediatric Patients
Utairat Chaumrattanakul received her Doctor of Medicine degree from Chiangmai University, Thailand in 1988. She then underwent the training in radiology at Chiangmai University Hospital (Maharaj Nakorn Chiangmai Hospital) during 1988 to 1991.
She began to work as a lecturer and a radiologist at Thammasat University of Thailand in October 1991. She is interested in pediatric radiology and neuroradiology, and started practicing pediatric radiology since 1993.
Currently she is an Associate Professor in radiology and serves as the Head of Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medicine, Thammasat University. She is teaching general diagnostic radiology and pediatric radiology to both undergraduate medical students and postgraduate residents in diagnostic radiology. She is also the only pediatric radiologist at Thammasat University Hospital.
Ultrasound is one of the most widely available technique used in medical imaging due to its low cost and portability. Recent advances in ultrasound technologies have contributed significantly to the improvement of the quality of the resulting images. Moreover, the current ultrasound machines do not require high technical skills of the operator. Finally, as opposed to many other imaging techniques, ultrasound does not expose the patients to radiation. The presentation offers an overview of medical ultrasound imaging applied to diagnose the pediatric patients.
Special support from Biomedical Center of Excellency, Thammasat University: free participation for Thai graduate students.
