Timely intracranial imaging enables diagnosis, directs treatment, and provides prognostic information of infant malformation or injury. MRI is the gold standard for neuroimaging, but can be inhibited by transportation risk and incompatible support devices. Ultrasound (US) is portable, rapid, and inexpensive, but limited by lower sensitivity and specificity. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) improves diagnostic accuracy of US in other clinical applications. Our aim was to prospectively compare CEUS of the neonatal brain to MRI. Read More

Advanced neuroimaging techniques are increasingly being used in the assessment of pediatric stroke and pediatric neurovascular disease. There is mounting evidence that noncontrast brain perfusion, contrast brain perfusion, and vessel wall imaging provide added clinical value in pediatric cerebrovascular disease. This presentation will outline the current literature and demonstrate the utility of these techniques through a pictorial case review of applications in pediatric stroke and related neurovascular pathologies. Technical guidelines and recommendations for each imaging modality will also be discussed. We aim to demonstrate a role for these techniques in pediatric diagnostic algorithms and neuroimaging protocols. Read More
