Answer

Cranial ultrasonography is performed readily at the bedside; it is a valuable tool for quickly ascertaining whether intracranial hemorrhage, particularly intraventricular hemorrhage, has occurred. A limitation of this study is the poor detection rate of cortical lesions or subarachnoid blood.
