5-year-old patient with acute-onset severe headache with nausea and vomiting presented to the hospital and was imaged using Swoop.
The patient has a known ventriculoperitoneal shunt with previously normal ventricular size. Swoop images aided in diagnosing acute obstructive hydrocephalus. The child was admitted and underwent a successful shunt revision.
