Dear Editor

Three important data are missing from this article:

(1) The seniority of doctors who assess the cranial ultrasound interpretation not mentioned in the ANZNN Data, this could account for the discrepancy in diagnosis.

(2) 2D images (Still pictures) are not substitute for 2 D Real time Video images , this should be the gold standard for Cranial ultrasound interpretation

(3) It is easy to diagnose Parenchymal Haemorrhages in 2 D (still pictures).
