Hi all I am new to the site and I have found hope and some relief from it. I noticed a hard ridge coming from my daughters soft spot (still open) down to her nose. It is not too noticeable at this time and not sure if there is any pinching yet. We went to the ped yesterday and she didn't seem concerned and that there was more symptoms that what she had if it were metopic craniosynostosis. I agree for extreme cases, yes she may have more symptoms by now, her head doesn't look triangular to me, and her eyes are set apart a normal distance, but there are mild cases. I set up an appointment with a pediatric neurosurgeon in August to take a look (we are traveling for the next 3 weeks). However I would totally do a CT scan to rule out that the metopic suture is closed, however both the ped and my husband think that the radiation dose is much more problematic than the ridge. My questions are: how long is it OK to wait for these things? Why would there be a ridge if it isn't closed? Does a CT scan have tons of radiation? I feel really overwhelmed and I can't stop looking at the ridge on my sweet baby's face, any help or insight is greatly appreciated.
