PURPOSE To compare quantitative T2 relaxometry of cerebral white matter (WM) with qualitative assessment of conventional T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) images, to assess the relationship between cerebral WM T2 and region-specific apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), and to examine WM T2 regional variation in preterm infants at term. MATERIALS AND(More)
We consider the range of childhood disabilities that have been attributed to perinatal hypoxic ischaemia at term and review the strength of evidence for each. The strongest evidence is for a causal link between acute profound hypoxic ischaemia and dyskinetic tetraplegic cerebral palsy (CP). Hemiplegic CP is not usually due to a perinatal hypoxic ischaemic(More)
In 2005, the Lancet Neonatal Survival Series highlighted the fact that 4 million babies die in the neonatal period; 99% of these deaths arise in low-income and middle-income countries. Globally, 23% of neonatal deaths are directly related to birth asphyxia; additionally, birth asphyxia leads to a substantial burden of longterm neurological disability and(More)
The aim of this study was to compare postmortem magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the renal system with autopsy in perinatal and fetal deaths. 37 deaths were studied and renal abnormalities were found in five of these cases. Postmortem MRI provided information of diagnostic utility comparable to that obtained by autopsy.
Babies born prematurely are at increased risk of adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. Recent advances suggest that measurement of brain volumes can help in defining biomarkers for neurodevelopmental outcome. These techniques rely on an accurate segmentation of the MRI data. However, due to lack of contrast, partial volume (PV) effect, the existence of both(More)
OBJECTIVES (i) To compare original foetal brain ultrasound findings with a multidisciplinary expert opinion; (ii) to compare the multidisciplinary expert ultrasound opinion with foetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings and (iii) to determine in which circumstances foetal MRI gives additional information, and in how many cases management is changed(More)
This is a case report and a descriptive study demonstrating that artifacts are common during long-term recording of amplitude-integrated electroencephalograms and may lead to erroneous classification of the amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram trace. Artifacts occurred in 12% of 200 hours of recording time sampled from a representative sample of 20(More)
IMPORTANCE Premature infants are at risk of developing encephalopathy of prematurity, which is associated with long-term neurodevelopmental delay. Erythropoietin was shown to be neuroprotective in experimental and retrospective clinical studies. OBJECTIVE To determine if there is an association between early high-dose recombinant human erythropoietin(More)
BACKGROUND Maturation of amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram (aEEG) activity is influenced by both gestational age (GA) and postmenstrual age. It is not fully known how this process is influenced by cerebral lesions. OBJECTIVE To compare early aEEG developmental changes between preterm newborns with different degrees of cerebral lesions on cranial(More)
