PedASPECTS may assist with early identification of infants requiring close developmental surveillance.
Why this matters
Approximately one-third of newborns with symptomatic neonatal arterial ischemic stroke (NAIS) develop cerebral palsy (CP) or impaired development.
Current neuroimaging methods used to quantify infarct volumes are complex and
Less complex methods are required to identify infants at risk of poorer neuro-developmental outcomes.
