Two-Dimensional Ultrasonography for the Visualization of Ventricular Landmarks

Abstract

One of the main reasons for developing a two-dimensional ultrasonar technique had been our hope that this would allow greater visualization of the ventricular system and that it would permit a standardization of the technique, so that it could rightly become a useful laboratory test in the Departments of Neurology and of Neurosurgery. I do not need here to go over details of our method, as this has been published (Galicich, Lombroso and Matson, 1965). Fig. 1 summarizes the scanning planes used in the study to be reported today.
