BACKGROUND Even preterm infants with normal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results are at greater risk for neuromotor dysfunction. OBJECTIVES Our aim was to compare serial diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data from preterm infants without apparent brain abnormalities on magnetic resonance imaging with those from term controls and to investigate the white matter (WM) region associated with neuromotor outcomes. METHODS We obtained serial DTIs from 21 preterm infants at term-equivalent age… CONTINUE READING
