This book discusses the key features of normal, age-dependent neonatal head ultrasonography as well as the findings of the most common neonatal neurological disorders as visualized by this modality. Neonatal head ultrasound is an important diagnostic tool in the initial evaluation of intracranial abnormalities in newborns. Head ultrasound is a safe  and cost-efficient tool for detecting brain abnormalities in preterm and term neonates, monitoring the progression of brain lesions, and describing the maturation of the developing neonatal brain.  To facilitate its use at the bedside, the book is organized by clinical findings and their differential diagnoses.  For each disorder, a clinical vignette describing the clinical presentation of the newborn  is accompanied by high-quality ultrasound images that depict the abnormal findings and detailed explanations of these findings. This book is a succinct guide to neonatal head ultrasonography for neuroradiologists, neonatologists, and pediatricians.

In The Press

“I feel that this textbook would be a valuable resource for trainee sonographers and radiologists with an interest in paediatric imaging. It would no doubt be of great value to the on-call trainee when faced with a call from the neonatal unit, and would be a useful, although brief, reference text for the department.” (Dr. Oliver Hulson, RAD Magazine, January, 2017)

“This book promotes the use of ultrasonography in the evaluation of neonatal head and spinal abnormalities. … The intended audience includes practicing clinicians in neonatology and radiologists and their trainees. … It symptom-based approach is helpful to bedside clinicians.” (Jay P. Goldsmith, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)
