Example text

An overview of cerebral pathology as can be visualised by CUS is provided in the Atlas on Cranial Ultrasonography by Govaert and De Vries (1997). 1 A Systematic Approach to Detect Cerebral Pathology While looking for signs of pathology, a systematic approach is recommended. The following can be used as a guideline: • Are the anatomical structures distinguishable, and do they appear normal? 1) • Does the maturation of the brain (cortical folding) appear appropriate for GA? 2) • Is there a normal distinction between the cortex and the white matter?

If timing is not optimally chosen, if time intervals between CUS examinations are too long, or if CUS examinations are discontinued too early, important information and/or injury may be overlooked. Adequate outcome prediction will then be unreliable, and an unfavourable outcome may not be predicted. On the other hand, if the quality of CUS is good, timing is carefully chosen, proper transducers are used, and, in the case of preterm birth, serial examinations are continued until term age, most diagnoses will not remain undetected, and the reliability and prognostic value of CUS can be high.
