The grand unifying theory of bright echoes in the fetal and neonatal brain
Department of Radiology, University of California, 505 Parnassus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94143-0628 USA. .Journal of ultrasound in medicine: official journal of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (Impact Factor: 1.54). 10/2012; 31(10):1665-73.
The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate that the high-amplitude reflecting structures in the fetal and neonatal brain can be explained by the echogenicity of their leptomeningeal coverings or leptomeningeal origins. The leptomeninges, especially the pia mater, constitute the "grand unifying theory of bright reflectors" in the fetal and neonatal brain. Images from fetal and neonatal sonograms were selected to illustrate the objectives above.
