Abstract

Certain pitfalls exist in the sonographic evaluation of the antrum in infants who are vomiting. Unless one is aware of these pitfalls, one can make erroneous diagnoses, miss diagnoses, or obtain erroneous measurements of both the mucosal and muscular layers. A discussion of these pitfalls and how to avoid them is presented.
