BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The accuracy of cranial sonography (US) in characterizing white matter (WM) injury in the premature infant is unclear. This study was aimed to assess the sensitivity and specificity of serial cranial US during the first 6 weeks of life in comparison to MR imaging at term (week of expected delivery) in characterizing the presence of WM(More)
Two-dimensional (2-D) cranial ultrasound (US) is the principal method for the detection of cerebral injury in the newborn. The aim of this study was to compare 2-D sonographic methods with more advanced 3-D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for assessing brain structure. From July 1998 to November 2000, we conducted a prospective methodological study(More)
Early and accurate evaluation of the nature and extent of cerebral injury in the preterm infant brain is important for prognostication and decision making in the neonatal intensive care unit. The capability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to define acute ischemic changes in white and gray matter in comparison to contemporaneous histopathology has not(More)
This study examined in a regional cohort of 66 term age very low birth weight infants, the relationship between qualitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measures of cerebral white and gray matter abnormalities and infant neurobehavioral functioning assessed by structured neurological examination. The diagnostic utility of the Dubowitz neonatal(More)
PURPOSE Our goal was to describe the MR imaging appearance and clinical pathologic correlates of bilateral basal ganglia hyperintensity in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). METHODS Medical records and laboratory data were reviewed retrospectively in nine cases of bilateral basal ganglia hyperintensity on long-repetition-time MR images.(More)
