New Ultrasound Measurements to Bridge the Gap between Prenatal and Neonatal Brain Growth Assessment

New Ultrasound Measurements to Bridge the Gap between Prenatal and Neonatal Brain Growth Assessment ORIGINAL RESEARCH PEDIATRICS New Ultrasound Measurements to Bridge the Gap between Prenatal and Neonatal Brain Growth Assessment X I.V.

Dudink ABSTRACT BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Most ultrasound markers for monitoring brain growth can only be used in either the prenatal or the postnatal period. We investigated whether corpus callosum length and corpus callosum–fastigium length could be used as markers for both prenatal and postnatal brain growth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 3D ultrasound study embedded in the prospective Rotterdam Periconception Cohort was performed at 22, 26 and 32 weeks’ gestational age in fetuses with fetal growth restriction, congenital heart defects, and controls. Postnatally, cranial ultrasound was performed at 42 weeks’ postmenstrual age. First, reliability was evaluated. Second, associations between prenatal and postnatal corpus callosum and corpus callosum–fastigium length were investigated. Third, we created reference curves and compared corpus callosum and corpus callosum–fastigium length growth trajectories of controls with growth trajectories of fetuses with fetal growth retardation and congenital heart defects. RESULTS: We included 199 fetuses; 22 with fetal growth retardation, 20 with congenital heart defects, and http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Neuroradiology American Journal of Neuroradiology
