In this prospective study, cranial ultrasound was performed to detect periventricular-intraventricular hemorrhage and periventricular leukomalacia in 33 preterm infants of less than 32 weeks' gestation. At 44 weeks postmenstrual age magnetic resonance imaging was performed to detect the stage of myelination. Neurodevelopmental outcome was assessed at 3 years of age in 31 children (2 children died in the first year of life). Significant correlations were found between neurodevelopmental outcome… CONTINUE READING
