Our baby boy has had problems during birth.  both a Ultrasound scan and CAT
scan were done.  Both shown damage to the same areas of the brain. (Taken at
1 day old and 6 days old respectively).

In laymans terrms the damage is in the upper rear both left and right side
(extensive) and in the frontal lobes but not as extensive.

According to the doctors we are to expect mobility problems  at the least
and potential learning problems.

Clinical observation, showns that he is progressing as expected for a normal
or better than normal baby with the milestone indications.


The questions are:

1. Are the CAT scan and  Ultrasound showing accurate results?

2. If they are, does the indicated damage actually translate into physical
(and mental) problems later or must actual progress be factored into the
equation?

Your comments and advise would eb greatly appreciated.
