We now addressed the question whether cortical surface area growth after preterm birth is predicted by the severity of peri- and postnatal illness. METHODS Cortical surface area was measured in 269 images from 111 infants born between 23 and 29 weeks and imaged at 23 to 48 weeks gestational age (GA).
