PURPOSE To evaluate the normal water diffusion changes that occur during the 1st year of life. MATERIALS AND METHODS Diffusion-weighted imaging was performed in 40 subjects (age range, birth to 1 year) in whom both magnetic resonance imaging and neurologic assessment results were normal at the time of imaging and, where available, at follow-up. Apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) was calculated in four areas of white matter (anterior and posterior subcortical and internal capsule) and four… CONTINUE READING
