Abstract

Objective: In 1990, three hospitals (the Madarász Street Children's Hospital in Budapest and the general hospitals in Cegléd and Zalaegerszeg) organised a coordinated ultrasound (US) screening programme. The screening was aimed at detecting a predefined series of developmental and acquired disorders. Material: In 9 years, a total of 46 858 infants were screened by the three hospitals: 20 185 in Budapest, 13 258 in Cegléd and 12 415 in Zalaegerszeg. Results: Disorders were detected in 4068 cases. Most (2885) involved abdominal or renal disorders; intracranial anomalies were found in 1062, and the remaining discoveries were of cysts or tumours in the liver, spleen or ovaries. Conclusions: Many disorders were detected (8.7%) needing either follow-up, or some form of treatment.
