Is this a nodular subcortical heterotopia- neonatal brain ultrasound

This neonate shows a large (3.5 cms.) sized lesion in the Rt. cerebral hemisphere. What do these neonatal brain ultrasound images portray? Is it a case of neonatal nodular subcortical heterotopia or is it an ICSOL due to intracerebral bleed or some form of glioma?
the answer: this is a large  intracerebral  haematoma occupying the right parietal and occipital regions of the  neonate's  brain. This was the diagnosis based on the MRI scan.
