This article is the first portion of a two-part review that illustrates the normal appearance of the cerebellum and posterior fossa on prenatal ultrasound and MRI and on postnatal diagnostic imaging studies. Classification and terminology of posterior fossa abnormalities in the literature are confusing due to evolution of concepts and sometimes lack of consensus. Accurate classification of posterior fossa anomalies is important for predicting fetal outcome and for appropriate counseling. In… CONTINUE READING
