The article presents a minisymposium for neonatal brain imaging. It reviews the current state of imaging of the fetal and newborn. It aims to discuss the role of fetal neuro magnetic resonance, the function of sonography and magnetic resonance imaging in the examination of the injured premature and term infant brain. It also examines the mutuality of imaging findings with clinical outcome.

    Background: Head US, the cornerstone neuroimaging modality in neonates, is believed to be less sensitive than MRI for detecting hypoxic ischemic injury (HII). Most reports comparing these modalities are retrospective and have a long interval between the exams. Objective: To prospectively...

    Occult spinal dysraphism is defined as a group of dystrophic conditions below an intact cover of dermis and epidermis. Ultrasonography using linear transducers is a fast, inexpensive, and effective method that makes it possible to view the content of the vertebral canal and bone structures....

    Renal volume, but not renal length, has been shown to be positively correlated with renal function. Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are two modalities used to assess renal volume. The aim of our study was to determine whether 3D ultrasound measurements of...

    We report a newborn girl with hydranencephaly. In the setting of a monochorionic twin pregnancy, one twin's demise was detected by ultrasonography at 18 weeks of gestation, apparently the result of a twin-twin transfusion. In the surviving twin, the evolution of ventriculomegaly, first noted at...

    To date the literature comparing the usefulness of US and MR examinations of the neonatal brain suggests that US is not as effective a modality as MR. However, available studies were done on older equipment and published descriptions of the abnormalities found in the term brain are often...

    Cerebellar hemorrhage (CH) is a well-known complication in newborns. Among metabolic patients, it has been classically described but rarely reported.
