Abstract

This study consisted of continuous EEG monitoring of neonates at risk of hypoxia ischemia (HI), alternated by MRI examinations on predefined time points. It is hypothesized that combining EEG with MRI could give more information about the development of possible brain damage. Included were 8 term newborns with suspected neonatal encephalopathy caused by perinatal HI. The EEG was intermittently measured between day 1 and 8 after birth. MRI data was acquired between day 1 and 9, within 24 hrs from an observed EEG event. Preliminary results indicate an agreement between abnormalities in diffusion weighted MR images and signal fluctuations at corresponding electrode locations.
