Burr hole or craniectomy site can severe as good acoustic windows to the nearby intracranial contents.Sonography of nine patientsas postoperative follow up examination is reported that proved to be a valuablediagnostic method for following reasons. Comparing with the computed tomography, SONOGRAPHY 1. is an inexpensive,rapid and easy means. 2. provides any obliquity or plane such as sagittal, coronal or axial. 3. lacks disconfortof contrast injection. 4. differentiates between solid and cystic lesions. 5. monitors changes of ventricular sizeespecially after shunt surgery. 6. can detect complications such as subdural collections. 7. makes it possible toaspirate fluid collections under the sonographic guidance.
