We evaluated whether the volume and growth rate of critical brain structures measured by MRI in the first weeks of life following very preterm (<32/40 weeks) birth could predict subsequent neurodevelopmental outcomes at 4 years of age. A significant proportion of children born very prematurely have cognitive deficits, but these problems are often only detected at early school age. Structural T2-weighted magnetic resonance images were acquired in 96 very preterm neonates scanned within 2 weeks… CONTINUE READING
