What is a Cranial Ultrasound/Head Ultrasound Test?
Ultrasound imaging of the head creates images of the brain and cerebrospinal fluid. It is most often performed on infants whose skulls have not yet developed entirely.
Why is it done?
Babies are most often given this test. It looks for problems caused by being born too soon. It can be used on babies up to about 18 months old to check for problems in the brain and ventricles.
It helps diagnose problems such as periventricular leukomalacia (PVL causes damage to the brain tissue surrounding the ventricles.) and intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH is bleeding in the brain).
Cranial ultrasonography can help assess a baby's growing head size. The test can also check for brain infection (encephalitis or meningitis).

The Sonography Technician will explain.
How does one prepare for the test?
No preparation is needed. You should wear loose-fitting clothing.
No care is required.
