Pediatric | Mass Lesion
13-year-old male presented to a remote clinic with focal abnormal neurological signs.
EEG performed was abnormal. Bedside imaging was obtained using Swoop in the remote location. Swoop images aided in diagnosing a large intra-axial tumor with resultant obstructive hydrocephalus. The patient was referred to a large city hospital for neurosurgical examination.
Pediatric | Hydrocephalus
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.
