Abstract: Retrospectively we assessed the value of routine postoperative CT scans in 113 children shunted for hydrocephalus. Of the 165 routine CT scans 13 showed fortuitous findings (= 8%) with a change in treatment accompanied by questionable benefits in only 2 (= 1.3%). Therefore we suggest that post-operative CT should not be performed as a routine examination but only on clinical grounds.
