UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to measure brainstem size on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of high-risk. preterm infants, to assess brainstem function by brainstem auditory-evoked potentials (BAEP) and to determine the predictive value of these measures for the neurosensory outcome. A total of 51 preterm infants (gestational age <34 wk, birthweight <1,500 g) underwent examinations at term age; neuromotor outcome and hearing were followed up until a corrected age of 18 mo.
