Case Report

Ultrasound Artifact in an Unusual Site Simulating Bilateral Subdural Haematoma in a Neonate
新生兒非常見部位超聲偽影模擬雙側硬膜下血腫

TF Lee, MW Man


Abstract

Ultrasound (US) provides a simple way to assess the infant brain. However, all imaging modalities have some sort of artifacts. Some of them will cause diagnostic dilemma or even leading to mis-diagnosis. We report a case of an interesting US artifact which simulates a bilateral subdural haematoma in a term neonate. The basic physics of ultrasound and the cause of the artifact are briefly reviewed.

超聲為新生兒頭顱檢查提供了一種簡單方法。但是,所有的影像學檢查都會出現偽影。其中一些偽影可能導致診斷困難甚至錯誤診斷。在此我們報導了一例足月新生兒超聲偽影病例,其模擬雙側硬膜下血腫表現,並且對超聲基本物理學知識及偽影產生原因進行了簡要概述。
