OBJECTIVE To investigate fetal brain development in vivo using early postnatal cranial MRI in term and preterm newborn infants. STUDY DESIGN 51 infants, 1.5-T whole-body system, extremity coil, spin-echo images obtained in all three planes (T1- and T2-weighted). Independent review by two neuroradiologists (blinded for gestational age and medical history)(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether an early magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study using perfusion-weighted imaging (PWI) may define the pattern of brain injury in term neonatal hypoxic-ischemic (HI) encephalopathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Five newborns with HI encephalopathy or a marker of perinatal depression, and 2 controls underwent an early MRI (at 2 to 4(More)
PURPOSE To illustrate the evolution of brain perfusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (PWI-MRI) in severe neonatal hypoxic-ischemic (HI) encephalopathy, and its possible relation to further neurodevelopmental outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two term neonates with HI encephalopathy underwent an early and a late MRI, including PWI. They were followed(More)
Fetal breathing activity was monitored by ultrasonography in 14 patients with oligohydramnios (4 with fetal anuria and 10 with premature rupture of the membranes). 45 patients with intact membranes, with normal amniotic fluid volume, and matched for gestational age were the controls. Fetal breathing movements were seen in all 8 patients who died in the(More)
INTRODUCTION Cerebrovascular changes are rarely discussed in patients with hemimegalencephaly. These alterations have previously been associated with epileptical activity. CASE We report the case of a 36-week gestation neonate presenting with total right hemimegalencephaly, as demonstrated by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed in the first days(More)
