• Ultrasound and computerized tomographic (CT) methods were used in detecting hydrocephalus and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in three premature infants, with excellent anatomic and pathologic correlation. Ultrasonography may offer an advantageous alternative to CT scanning in evaluating suspected IVH and/or posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus in critically ill infants.
