Clinical Trial Summary

- To investigate the prevalence of cerebral abnormal findings in neonates admitted at nursery unit.{11} - to identify the associated clinical features and to better target neonatal CUS investigations.{11}


Clinical Trial Description

Preterm birth is associated with various brain injuries. The earlier the period of gestation, more is the incidence of brain injuries. Brain injuries are known to be one of the most important factors leading to significant morbidity and mortality in these vulnerable preterm babies.{1} Cranial ultrasound (CUS) examinations have been performed on preterm infants to diagnose various perinatal brain injuries and for the prediction of long term outcomes.{2} Cranial ultrasonography (CUS) is the preferred modality to image the neonatal brain.{3} The advantages of CUS are numerous: it can be performed at the bedside with little disturbance to the infant, it is relatively safe, and can be repeated whenever needed, enabling visualization of ongoing brain maturation and the evolution of lesions.{4,5} ;
