Center for Ultrasound & Contrast – Enhanced Ultrasound


On the basis of EU funding, we are equipped with the most modern ultrasound machine for contrast enhanced studies which we were the first to implement in Croatia in 2006. We were the first to introduce diagnosis of vesicoureteral reflux by contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (ceVUS), which has been used in the algorithm of the Croatian Pediatric Nephology Society since 2017 and is today the primary method for diagnosing and monitoring VUR. We also introduced ceUS, contrast ultrasound for liver diseases, kidneys and other organs. Our institution was the first to promote the “Image gently” approach, i.e. no use of radiation in childhood. For many years we have been organizing international courses in pediatric ultrasound and contrast ultrasound.

In the multidisciplinary Center for Ultrasound (US) we offer:

    • US of the abdominal organs
    • US of the kidneys and bladder
    • US of the heart
    • US of the brain
    • US of the hips
    • US of superficial organs (thyroid, breast, lymph nodes, musculoskeletal)
    • US of the lumbosacral spine
    • Contrast-enhanced voiding urosonography (ceVUS) – for diagnostics and monitoring of vesicoureteral reflux
    • Contrast ultrasound (ceUS) for focal and diffuse the liver, spleen, other parenchyma abdominal organs, cystic kidney disease and other indications
    • Color Doppler of all blood vessels
    • TCCD transcranial ultrasound of brain blood vessels
    • Fetal ultrasound of the heart and urinary system
