Natural history of neonatal periventricular/intraventricular hemorrhage and its complications: sonographic observations

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 1984 Nov;143(5):1041-52. doi: 10.2214/ajr.143.5.1041.


Cranial sonography is an established procedure for the detection of neonatal intracranial hemorrhage. A 3 year experience in imaging such infants is reviewed. Representative examples are presented to comprehensively illustrate the spectrum of sonographic appearances of intracranial hemorrhage and its complications from the initial hemorrhage to resolution. Diagnostic problems in the initial staging of the grade of hemorrhage and in evaluating subsequent ventricular changes are addressed.
