How is constriction ring syndrome diagnosed?

Occasionally, constriction ring syndrome can be diagnosed before birth by prenatal ultrasound. However, the majority of cases are diagnosed at or shortly after birth by your child’s doctor.

X-rays of your child’s affected limb are also used to help assess how deep and tight the band is.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
