Sonographic evaluation of pediatric localized scleroderma: preliminary disease assessment measures. We describe the range of sonographic differences found in pediatric LS, and present our efforts to standardize ultrasound acquisition and image interpretation for this disease. We present ultrasound measures that may aid evaluation of disease state. These assessments should be considered a work in progress, whose purpose is to facilitate further study in this area. More studies are needed to assess their validity and reliability. Suzanne C. Li. Pediatric Rheumatology. 2010, 8:14. (Also see: Localized Scleroderma)
