Abstract

Neurological disorders are common in the neonatal period, especially in premature infants. The computerised tomographic (C.T.) aspects of intraventricular haemorrhage are now fairly well known. However parenchymal lesions present difficulties because of the presence of alternating areas of high and low density, very different from the pattern seen in adults. Accurate knowledge of normal C.T. aspects in premature infants is necessary to be able to distinguish normal from pathological findings. This study attemps to define these normal aspects.
