None of the neonates examined had evidence of renal dysfunction. Echogenic material was observed in the renal papillae/calyces, ureter, or bladder of 33 of the 64 term babies, but in the bladder of only one pre-term infant. The distribution of the echogenicity differs from that seen in… CONTINUE READING
