Early Prediction of Cognitive and Motor Deficits Using Advanced MRI in Very Preterm Infants

Status: Active, not recruiting
Location: See location...
Study Type: Observational

The Early Prediction Study is a longitudinal population-based cohort study for very preterm infants ≤32 weeks gestational age. Preterm infants recruited from three greater Cincinnati and two Dayton area neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) will undergo advanced MRIs at 41 weeks postmenstrual age and neurodevelopmental testing at the corrected ages of two and three years correct age. The goal of the Early Prediction Study is to accurately predict motor, cognitive, and behavioral deficits in individual very preterm infants using neuroimaging technologies and established epidemiologic approaches.
