Abnormal white matter appearance on term FLAIR predicts neuro-developmental outcome at 6 years old following preterm birth.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Preterm infants are at significant risk of neuro-developmental disorders at school-age. MRI is a potentially useful screening tool of such disorders. Using FLAIR imaging in the preterm infants at term, here we demonstrate that abnormal low-intensity signal in the white matter predicts the neuro-developmental outcome at 6 years.
