Abstract

Cranial CT has opened new and significant possibilities for neuroradiology investigations(HOUNSFIELD, 1973; AMBROSE, 1973; PERRY and BRIDGES, 1973; NEW et al. , 1974; DAVIS and PRESSMAN, 1974; BAKER et al. , 1974; GAWLER et al. , 1974; PAXTON and AMBROSE, 1974; COLLARD et al. , 1975; KAZNER et al. , 1975; KAZNER et al. , 1976). New fields of research have been opened and indications for examination have been enormously expanded. Neuropediatrics has gained a technique of pain-less and safe presentation of both normal and pathologically changed brain structures, from the so far relatively unstudied malformations to degenerative atrophic processes and tumors. Cranial CT offers possibilities for investigating particular clinical syndromes, which have not been utilized so far.
