Assessing Cranial Ultrasound Examinations
When performing and assessing CUS examinations, the anatomy (see Part II) and maturation (see Chap. 8) of the brain are evaluated, and signs of pathology, whether congenital or acquired, are sought. In general, anomalies should be visualised in at least two different planes (see Fig. 3.8). A detailed overview of brain pathology as can be visualised by CUS is provided in the Atlas on Cranial Ultrasonography by Govaert and De Vries .
