OBJECTIVE Preterm or low birth weight infants display a greater propensity for white matter injury caused by hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in the perinatal period. Such episodes can result in periventricular leukomalacia, which may substantially influence later brain development. Noninvasive methods of assessing the severity of injury at the earliest stage of life have not yet been established. METHODS We used diffusion tensor imaging to evaluate sensorimotor fibers in periventricular… CONTINUE READING
