Abstract

Neurosonography remains the preferred method of early imaging of the brain while the fontanelles remain open because of low cost, portability, and safety. This article provides a framework for expansion of one's ability to detect the gamut of neuropathology affecting infants through various applications of neurosonography. In all conditions-congenital, infectious, neoplastic, and injury-neurosonography is often the first step. With 3-dimensional localization, advances in quantitative algorithms, and forays into ultrasound contrast administration, additional value may be obtained in the future from this bedside modality.
