OBJECTIVE Predicting long-term outcome in infants with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a difficult task. Magnetic resonance imaging, particularly diffusion imaging, holds promise in this regard as it is more sensitive to brain injury than any other available imaging modality. Previous studies have suggested that abnormal signal intensity in the posterior limb of the internal capsule (PLIC), detectable on inversion-recovery T1-weighted imaging, is a strong predictor of outcome. The aim… CONTINUE READING
