Morphologic Evolution and Coordinated Development of the Fetal Lateral Ventricles in the Second and Third Trimesters

The variation of lateral ventricle volume evolved from a slow to rapid increase at 14–35 gestational weeks, resulting in a better linear correlation between the calcarine sulcus length and the posterior horn length.

Novel imaging techniques to study postmortem human fetal anatomy: a systematic review on microfocus-CT and ultra-high-field MRI

The present study offers an overview of the current best practices when using micro-CT and/or UHF-MRI to study fetal anatomy for clinical and research purposes.

Development of the Fetal Cerebral Cortex in the Second Trimester: Assessment with 7T Postmortem MR Imaging

The second trimester is the most important phase, during which most sulci are present and can be clearly shown on 7T postmortem MR imaging, and the specific time during which neuropathologic features of sulci appear should be redefined.

Development of fetal brain of 20 weeks gestational age: assessment with post-mortem Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Fetal cerebral cortex: normal gestational landmarks identified using prenatal MR imaging.

This analysis of fetal brain sulcation in a large series of fetuses contributes to a better understanding of the maturation of the fetal cortex on MR imaging studies and provides a standard of reference that can be used to assess the normality of fetal sulcation and to diagnose gyrational abnormalities with prenatal MR imaging.

Study of fetal and postnatal morphological development of the brain sulci.

The brain is subjected to considerable morphological changes throughout gestation, and during fetal brain development the cortex begins to fold in, thereby increasing the cortical surface.

Development of the subcortical brain structures in the second trimester: assessment with 7.0-T MRI

Development of the subcortical brain structures during 12–22 weeks GA could be displayed with 7.0-T MRI and provides significant reference beneficial to the clinical evaluation of fetal brain development.

Fetal brain scans were analyzed to determine the feasibility of imaging specific sulci, gyri and fissures using transvaginal sonography and to correlate their first sonographic recognition with gestational age.

Mapping the early cortical folding process in the preterm newborn brain.

This study investigates the sulcal emergence noninvasively in 35 preterm newborns, by applying dedicated postprocessing tools to magnetic resonance images acquired shortly after birth over a developmental period critical for the human cortex maturation (26-36 weeks of age).

Development of laminar organization of the fetal cerebrum at 3.0T and 7.0T: a postmortem MRI study

Development of the lamination follows a specific spatio-temporal regularity, and postmortem MRI of the parieto-occipital part of brain obtained with 3.0T or 7.0 T postmortem magnetic resonance imaging is an effective way to show developmental changes.
