Purpose – to study the data of ultrasound examination of the children’s pancreas. Materials and methods. The analysis of the 480 stories of infant’s city Hospital Novodvinsk Arkhangelsk region (2007–2012). 11720 results and ultrasound of the pancreas on materials Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital (2011–2014). The data are statistically processed by methods of nonparametric statistics.

Results of research and their discussion

1. It has been found that the pancreas had normal dimensions, sharp contours, pancreatic duct is not expanded parapancreatic fiber is not changed, the bulk formation have been identified. The values of thickness in the area of the head, body, tail were within the age and species norm: head 8,6 ± 1,01; body 5,3 ± 0,86; cauda 7,0 ± 1,04 mm [1, 2, 4].

2. The thickness of the pancreas was significantly different for children of different groups of health. With increasing health groups a decrease in breast thickness in all parts of [3, 4, 5].

3. Changes at ultrasonic research of the pancreas are observed at presence of cysts and cystic fibrosis. These diseases are often are identified in children after 12 years, in boys and girls with equal frequency. So ultrasonic research of children’s of the pancreas has an important diagnostic significance, especially if there is a serious disease.
