The purpose of this study was to compare diagnostic capability of MRI and US in the assessment of germinal matrix-intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) and associated brain lesions. Sixteen newborns with US and/or MRI diagnosis of IVH were admitted to the study. US was performed in both acute and subacute/chronic phase while MR only in the subacute/chronic phase. A diagnosis of IVH could be made in 15 patients by MRI and in 13 by US. Moreover MRI was able to detect associated white matter lesions missed by US in two cases. Only in one patient an US diagnosis of IVH was missed by MRI in the chronic phase. In conclusion, due to a better evaluation than US of the end-stage of IVH lesions, MRI seems to have an important prognostic value.
