• If the clinical history or findings on neuroimaging do not determine a specific structural abnormality or if there are additional and atypical features in the history or clinical examination, metabolic and genetic testing should be considered (Level C, Class III and IV). • Detection of a brain malformation in a child with CP warrants consideration of an underlying genetic or metabolic etiology (Level C, Class III and IV evidence). This is a summary of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN… Expand
A Systematic Review of Neuroimaging for Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
The evidence provided by magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography imaging studies in cerebral palsy is reviewed and the potential benefits of imaging, techniques in current use, and future directions are discussed, with a focus on improving etiologic understanding. Expand
A report: the definition and classification of cerebral palsy April 2006
TLDR
Suggestions were made about the content of a revised definition and classification of CP that would meet the needs of clinicians, investigators, health officials, families and the public and would provide a common language for improved communication. Expand
Early diagnosis of cerebral palsy
TLDR
Based on research evidence, the best three tools to detect high risk of CP before the corrected age of 5 months old are neonatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the Prechtl Qualitative Assessment of General Movements (GMs), and the Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination (HINE). Expand
Cerebral palsy in children: a clinical overview.
TLDR
Because CP is associated with multiple associated and secondary medical conditions, its management requires a multidisciplinary team approach. Expand
Computerized Tomography Scan of the Brain in a Community Study of Neurological Impairment in Kenya
TLDR
Motor impairments were more likely to show abnormality than the other indications, and CT abnormalities are common in children with neurological impairment in Kenya, but the appearances did not identify a major cause. Expand
Cerebral palsy: not always what it seems
TLDR
Children with CP should be referred to a paediatric neurologist or a clinical geneticist, or both, if appropriate and particularly in the absence of a known perinatal cerebral insult. Expand
Profile of children with cerebral palsy spectrum disorder and a normal MRI study
TLDR
Normal MRIs were associated with lack of perinatal adversity as well as with the dyskinetic, ataxic/hypotonic, and spastic diplegic CP subtypes, and continuous follow-up in children with normal imaging appears warranted. Expand
Evaluation of the relationship between cranial magnetic resonance imaging findings and clinical status in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
The most common cranial MRI pathology was PVL, and the presence of PVL and its grade might help clinically assess the patient’s CP type and level of mobilization. Expand
Role of child neurologists and neurodevelopmentalists in the diagnosis of cerebral palsy
TLDR
Recommendations regarding the role of child neurologists and neurodevelopmentalists in cerebral palsy care are developed and early referral for CP diagnosis to a CN/NDD or specialist with comparable expertise is recommended. Expand
Brain imaging in cerebral palsy
  • B. Vollmer
  • Medicine
  • Developmental medicine and child neurology
  • 2013
TLDR
Findings in this study suggest that finding an SCN1A mutation, especially early, could result in improved treatment selection leading to better seizure control and ultimately an amelioration of the typically devastating long-term developmental course of this disorder. Expand
