We evaluated whether the volume and growth rate of critical brain structures measured by MRI in the first weeks of life following very preterm (<32/40 weeks) birth could predict subsequent neurodevelopmental outcomes at 4 years of age. A significant proportion of children born very prematurely have cognitive deficits, but these problems are often only(More)
BACKGROUND Individuals who have aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhages (SAHs) experience decreased health-related qualities of life (HRQoLs) that persist after the primary insult. OBJECTIVE To identify clinical variables that concurrently associate with HRQoL outcomes by using a partial least-squares approach, which has the distinct advantage of explaining(More)
PURPOSE To measure cerebellar growth in a longitudinal cohort of very preterm infants to identify early predictors of subsequent brain growth. Although the cerebellum grows rapidly during late gestation, the rate and variability of growth following premature birth, and the effects of associated injury, are largely unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS In all,(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of brain injury on white matter development and long-term outcomes in very preterm (VPT) neonates. METHODS Eighty-five VPT neonates (born <32/40 weeks gestational age (GA)) scanned within 2 weeks of birth were divided into three groups based on the presence of perinatal cerebral injury: (i)(More)
