This book clearly explains the basics of cranial ultrasonography in the neonate, from patient preparation through to screening strategies and the classification of abnormalities. The aim is to enable the reader consistently to obtain images of the highest quality and to interpret them correctly. Essential information is provided both on the procedure itself and on the normal ultrasound anatomy. The standard technique is described and illustrated, and emphasis is placed on the value of supplementary acoustic windows. Attention is also drawn to maturational changes in the neonatal brain and to the limitations of cranial ultrasonography. Frequently occurring abnormalities are described and classifications for these abnormalities are provided. A new classification for neonatal cerebellar hemorrhages is introduced. In this third edition, all ultrasound images have beena replaced, reflecting the improvements in image quality. An entirely new chapter is devoted to Doppler ultrasonography. The illustrations have been improved and new illustrations were added. The reader will have access to highly informative videos on the cranial ultrasound procedure, available online via SpringerLink. The compact design of the book makes it an ideal and handy reference that will guide the novice in understanding the essentials of the technique while also providing useful information for the more experienced practitioner.

User’s Review:

Review “The purpose is to teach clinicians about the techniques and findings of neonatal cranial ultrasound as a diagnostic tool for neonatal brain pathology. The goal is to help readers obtain the best images and then interpret them correctly. The anatomy of the brain is well depicted for novices and the features of each anatomic structure are shown in well-done illustrations according to the transducer’s plane and acoustic window. The book is aimed at technicians, trainees, and readers of ultrasound examinations.” (Jay P. Goldsmith, Doody’s Book Reviews, June 14, 2019)

Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:

⭐ This is an excellent resource for a radiologist reading cranial ultrasound, neonatologist, or a child neurologist. I reference this book on a weekly basis to verify what is seen and interpreted in cranial ultrasounds. The explanations are very straightforward. Most importantly, the prototypic examples given in the book are exceptionally clear and were collected wisely.
