MRI Atlas of Pediatric Brain Maturation and Anatomy and its software application offer a concise review of normal myelin, myelination, and commonly used MR techniques.
Practical points on using MRI to assess the progress of brain maturation are discussed, followed by clinically relevant summaries of normal MR appearances grouped by age.
The book version contains abridged sets of normal reference MR images between preterm and 3 years of age.
The software proividesimmediate access to over 13,000 high resolution, normal comparison MR images of subjects ranging in age from 32 gestational weeks to 3 years.
Designed as both a practical clinical resource and educational tool, the software is ideal for use at the imaging workstation where one can rapidly bring upcomplete sets of high quality, scrollable MR reference images with guiding annotations to ensure more accurate and clinically valuable interpretations.
Suspected deviations from normal brain development or MR signal can be more confidently identified or excluded, and diagnostic errors arising from unfamiliarity with the changing MR appearances of the immature brain can be minimized.
