Pediatric Neurosonography is an atlas compendium of correlations of neonatal neurosonographic findings with clinical presentations and neuropathologic diagnoses. The material was mainly derived over a 19-month period from 38 infants in the neonatal intensive care unit of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha. Both sonographic and neuropathologic examinations were performed in all the infants.

This work is meant to familiarize physicians with basic ultrasound principles and to provide findings of the normal neonatal central nervous system anatomy as well as neonatal central nervous system pathologic findings. The examinations were principally done in perinates of less than 1500 g, usually at 24 hours and at five days.

This book of 21 chapters, with 261 illustrations and two tables, also includes chapters on equipment selection and safety, scanning techniques, major anatomic neurodevelopmental fetal and neonatal milestones, and neuroventricular sonography. There are excellent examples of intracranial hemorrhage, hypoxic-ischemic and traumatic injury
