Focal and multifocal ischemic/hemorrhagic lesions

Andrea Righini, Fabio Triulzi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


One of the areas of fetal and neonatal neurology where MR has provided significant improvement in knowledge is focal cerebral ischemia on both arterial and venous basis [1, 2]. In the detection of acute lesions or chronic sequelae, MR has shown a high sensitivity and specificity. The use of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) has increased the MRI sensitivity in acute conditions in both fetal and neonatal period [3, 4]. On the other side, the accurate assessment of lesion extension has facilitated the prediction of neurological outcome.
