Suggestions on large head
Hi... I understand your concern, but you need not be worried at all.
You need not go ahead with any neuroimaging
like CT Scan which involves a great deal of radiation
. As such there is no need to do any imaging of the brain. But if you are tensed and prefer to go ahead, I suggest you to go with ultrasound
of the head which is otherwise called neurosonogram, which does not involve any radiation at all.
The anterior fontanelle
will close by 18 months only.
You need not worry about the head circumference of your child as this does not categoris into macrocephaly
or large head, which requires evaluation. Moreover he is developmentally normal. So you need not worry at all.
