Neurosonology: An Update


Recent technological advances in diagnostic ultrasound have resulted in the development of high-resolution, portable real-time scanners. In neurological ultrasound, these devices have been particularly useful for detecting intracranial hemorrhage in premature infants. Sonography is now being used during neurosurgical procedures to help in localizing masses for resection and biopsy, as well as in the placement of shunt catheters. The applications of neurosonology and our experience with intraoperative neurosonology are reported in this review.
