Abstract

A prospective ultrasonographic study of intracranial structures of 100 'high risk' newborns has led to the determination of their neuroradiological status and has demonstrated the usefulness of these examinations. The use of such techniques is justified in as much as present post birth reanimation methods allow survival of those babies born with less weight, younger gestational age and presenting increased risks of cerebral lesions. Starting hydrocephalus, intraventricular hemorrhage as well as congenital malformations of the ventricular system has been observed. These results have been obtained using high quality ultrasonographic equipment which because of continuous improvement imply that cerebral ultrasonographic semeiology already well advanced, will undergo further diversification. U.S. has the advantage to be of easy application, inexpensive and harmless. U.S. is thus the new alternative in a field presently preserved for C.T.
