ULTRASOUND - NEUROSONOGRAM is a simple, established non-invasive technique for the intracranial assessment of preterm neonate. This can demonstrate or exclude the presence of intra cranial haemorrhage in a preterm neonate.Where is ultrasound useful? Ultrasound is used in many parts of the body, specifically to view the fetus, for other gynecological abnormalities and to view the abdomen, orbits, thyroid gland, breast, testes, etc. Are there any dangers? There is no known danger to the use of ultrasound Are there any dyes in ultrasound, as in X-rays? As of now there are no "dyes" injected in routine ultrasound practice.

This ultrasound is performed when there's a concern about neurological problems in an infant.
