Developmental Anomalies

  • Klaus Sartor


Malformations of the brain and its coverings are defined primarily by their gross morphologic (macroscopic) appearance, although they may be further characterized by their histologic (microscopic) features. Therefore, to determine presence or absence of a developmental anomaly, one has to scrutinize first the cerebral anatomy and search for deviations from the normal. Ever since radiographic methods of investigation capable of visualizing intracranial structures in vivo became available, radiology has played an important role in the evaluation of patients with possible developmental anomalies of the central nervous system. For quite some time now, noninvasive methods have been furnishing information previously obtainable only from invasive studies. Unfortunately, these more recently developed and widely used imaging techniques, ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT), have certain limitations.
