Sixty-three patients, 3 days to 12 months old, were examined by MR imaging to evaluate the normal development of the corpus callosum in the first year of life.

During the second month, a variable spurt of growth occurs in the genu, followed by a similar period of rapid growth in the splenium between 4-6 months of age. High signal intensity on T1-weighted… CONTINUE READING
