Introduction The aim of this review is to present the contemporary role of radiology in evaluating pediatric hydrocephalus. Although conventional brain imaging with ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveal the degree of ventricular enlargement and often the etiology of the hydrocephalus, the diagnosis and management of hydrocephalus present common problems in pediatric populations.
