CT scanning is accepted as a regular component of the investigation of patients with simple craniosynostosis. In a series of 109 cases with simple craniosynostoses treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, a correct diagnosis on the basis of clinical findings was made in 100% of cases by an experienced clinician. CT scans with 3D reconstructions provided diagnostic confir mation in 100% of the patients when performed, but 91 % of patients had already had sufficient confirmation of… Expand
