In the past few years, considerable interest has developed in ultrasound scanning of the newborn brain. This book deals with all aspects of intracranial ultrasound examination of the infant's brain and spinal cord. The authors represent the specialties of neonatology and pediatric radiology, and the book has an international background of European and American experience. The authors discuss the instrumentation and role of ultrasound in imaging the brain compared with other techniques and devote a major chapter to normal appearances and methods of scanning. Other chapters deal with hemorrhagic and ischemic cerebral injuries of both preterm and term infants, together with the sequelae that may develop as a result of these lesions. Infection, both prenatal and postnatal, viral and bacterial, is fully discussed. In addition, a number of chapters consider the diagnosis of intracranial cerebral anomalies. This book is intended to be of value both to the novice ultrasonographer and to the more experienced scanner wishing to have an initial overview of the subject.Levene, Malcolm I. is the author of 'Ultrasound of the Infant Brain', published 1991 under ISBN 9780521412124 and ISBN 0521412129.
