OBJECTIVE Although preterm very low birth weight infants have a high prevalence of neuroanatomical abnormalities when evaluated at term-equivalent age, patterns of brain growth in prematurely born infants during school age and adolescence remain largely unknown. Our goal was to test the hypothesis that preterm birth results in long-term dynamic changes in the developing brain. METHODS We performed serial volumetric MRI studies at ages 8 and 12 years in 55 preterm infants born weighing 600 to… CONTINUE READING
