In children with Covid-19, the diagnosis of Kawasaki Disease (KD) and pneumonia should be made very quickly. However, the regional hospitals surrounding Paris don't have the required expertise. The use of MELODY allows the paediatric team to quickly carry out the necessary examinations while avoiding the movement of patients and the risk of contamination.

The MELODY remote system developed by the company AdEchoTech is a CE marking telemedicine technique, allowing an expert to perform an ultrasound scan on a distant patient (several hundred/thousands of kms). The Melody system makes it possible to optimize ultrasound expertise resources wherever they are located (all specialties combined) The feasibility of the clinical use of telerobotic sonography has been demonstrated in adults for abdominal, cardiac and prenatal exam. Thus, the aim of this study is to assess the feasibility of this system in children.
