Early diffusion-weighted images in infants with subcortical leukomalacia.


We describe two infants with subcortical leukomalacia and decreased water diffusivity in widespread white matter on magnetic resonance imaging. In both infants, diffusion-weighted imaging at age 1 day revealed a widespread increase in signal intensities, predominantly in subcortical areas. The corticospinal tract in the brainstem was not involved… (More)
