Early and accurate evaluation of the nature and extent of cerebral injury in the preterm infant brain is important for prognostication and decision making in the neonatal intensive care unit. The capability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to define acute ischemic changes in white and gray matter in comparison to contemporaneous histopathology has not been adequately ascertained. The aim of this study is to assess whether postmortem MRI predicts the nature and extent of brain injury in a… CONTINUE READING
