Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of part 2 of this article is to focus on key imaging features of common skin-covered spinal anomalies (spina bifida occulta) and to distinguish them from normal variants (previously discussed in part 1).

CONCLUSION:

Modern imaging technology allows accurate neonatal spinal sonographic screening and the characterization of spinal abnormalities within the first few days of life. It is useful to determine the type of lesion present and to guide the type and timing of therapy.
