Temporal comparative analysis of computed tomography with ultrasound for intracranial hemorrhage in premature infants

Neuroradiology. 1983;24(4):205-11. doi: 10.1007/BF00399772.


This study focuses on comparison of computed tomography and ultrasound in premature infants with intracranial hemorrhage and its complications. It was determined that close correlation (95%) exists between CT and ultrasound for evaluation of ventriculomegaly. Although there is reasonable correlation for the identification and localization of periventricular, intraventricular and choroidal hemorrhages, ultrasound defined such lesions at higher rates. Subarachnoid blood and periventricular edema were diagnosed better or exclusively by CT.
