OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to estimate the development of the gyrus and sulcus formation in normal fetuses on the basis of the neuroanatomical findings using MR images in relation to gestational age. METHODS The MR images were obtained from 109 normal fetuses from 18 to 39 weeks of gestation with no neurological problems. The MR images were classified into 8 stages of development for the gyrus and sulcus formation in the frontal and temporal lobes on the basis of the… CONTINUE READING
