Cranial ultrasound findings in well newborn Ugandan infants


Hagmann, C F; Robertson, N J; Acolet, D; Chan, D; Onda, S; Nyombi, N; Nakakeeto, M; Cowan, F M (2010). Cranial ultrasound findings in well newborn Ugandan infants. Archives of Disease in Childhood. Fetal and Neonatal Edition, 95(5):F338-F344.

Abstract

Apparently well term-born Ugandan infants frequently have abnormalities on cUS. These are mainly increased WM echogenicity, SEP and CPC. These may relate to the reported high incidence of congenital infections in this population but this remains to be confirmed. The observations provide baseline data for comparison with scans from sick infants from similar communities and are also important for studies in which cUS will be used to assess progress.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
