Infant cranial sonography

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Sonography now plays an essential part in the imaging of the infant brain. While its paramount role in the preterm is well established, its importance in the term infant has also become obvious. Congenital anomalies and infections of the brain are often imaged with sonography alone, and ultrasound is an essential and a daily part of the evaluation of patients undergoing ECMO. From the foregoing discussion, however, certain entities, most notably calcifications and certain forms of intracranial hemorrhage, are not optimally imaged with ultrasound, and in these cases the contribution of a complementary imaging modality may provide the diagnosis.
