• Characterizing the neonatal brain with ultrasound elastography

    5 monthes ago - By Pediatric Neurology

    Prematurity is associated with significant neurologic injury and impaired neurodevelopment. In neonatology, ultrasonography is frequently used to assess for and diagnose neurologic injury. Advantages of ultrasonography are that it allows for rapid bedside imaging without radiation. Limitations include the need for operator experience, lack of quantification and lower prognostic power when compared with magnetic resonance imaging. Elastography is one of several technical advances used to enhance the diagnostic capability of traditional ultrasound.
