Echo-Encephalographic Investigations with Hydrocephalus of Various Origins, Especially Infantile Hydrocephalus
In infantile hydrocephalus, which is particularly suitable for echo-encephalographic demonstration because of the great echo-amplitudes, repeated follow-up studies allow a precise control of the development of ventricular dilatation. In addition to the width of the ventricle — especially the diameter of the third ventricle — the thickness of the brain mantle can also be determined. With infantile hydrocephalus, it can also be measured in the sagittal direction, a possibility which our method generally does not allow with adults.
