Dr Karthik P | Dr R Rama Krishna Paramahamsa | Dr Venkat Gopal Kodem [2]

Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Neurosonogram is the most available and easily repeatable screening for neonatal brain development and in the recognitions of subtle patterns of injury and features suggestive of developmental, metabolic and infectious disorders. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: Primary Objective: 1. To assess the Importance of Neursonogram as screening for high risk neonates. Secondary Objective: To assess neuroimaging morphology of various cerebral lesions and correlate clinically. RESULTS: 100 high risk neonates who were subjected to neurosonography which resulted in 26 % of neonates had abnormal findings, out of which 12 % with evidence of intracranial bleed, 8 % hyperechogenic thalami, 2 % with definite HIE, 4 % had cerebral oedema. CONCLUSION: Neurosonogram is a vital investigatory and screening modality in NICU and effectively documents brain abnormalities and cerebral injury
