Ultrasound Diagnosis of Neonatal Conditions of the Genitourinary Tract
Ultrasound evaluation of suspected neonatal genitourinary abnormalities is readily accomplished. The newer real-time high resolution (transducer frequencies of 5,7.5, and 10 MHz) scanners have made the examination rapid, requiring no sedation, and portable to examine newborns in the nursery. Ultrasound is the procedure of first choice for identification of neonatal genitourinary conditions.
