Although fractal analyses of adult human brain complexity have been performed for several years, the use of fractal dimension (FD) to measure complexity of the developing fetal cortical surface has not been extensively investigated. This study attempts to measure the complexity of the developing fetal cortical surface using the concept of FD. As has been done by others, the commonly used box-counting (BC) method was herein extended from 2-D to 3-D to quantify the FD of fetal cortical complexity… CONTINUE READING
