I haven't had this specific test done but my kids had a lot of procedures as babies and toddlers. Try to be calm, your baby can pick up on your feelings. Two of my children had neurological problems and it helps so much if you have a nice neurologist. Here is something I found that I hope helps.
One of the more common causes of macrocephaly is termed benign subdural hygromas of infancy. Characteristically, the infant has a normal head circumference at birth and for the first few months. The head growth then accelerates and may exceed the ninety-eighth percentile. Development is usually normal but there may be mild motor delay. These children do well without intervention. The head size usually normalizes by eighteen to twenty-four months and development catches up.
