Ultrasound, as a diagnostic modality, has been developing rapidly. High-resolution ultrasound machines have been reduced to the size of a laptop computer. Ultrasound can be adopted by otolaryngologists for use within the clinic and the operating room. Ultrasound offers several advantages to the pediatric patient population. It is well tolerated and adds a degree of precision to the physical examination. It can be done repeatedly as lesions evolve and treatment is performed. It is valuable for guidance and therapeutic treatment of lesions in the operating room. It is likely that ultrasound use will continue to rapidly grow and evolve as a tool within the field of otolaryngology.
