PURPOSE To determine the utility of using quantitative apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values as an objective means of early detection of brain injury caused by hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) in term neonates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Conventional images, diffusion-weighted images, ADC maps, and clinical charts from 13 term neonates clinically suspected of having HIE were retrospectively reviewed. Four term neonates without HIE served as control subjects. ADC values were calculated… CONTINUE READING
