During this webinar, Dr. Mireille Guillot will share how neonatal neuroimaging can be used both as a diagnostic tool to detect preterm brain injury and as a prognostic tool, to predict neurodevelopmental outcomes. Several factors, including the imaging modality (head ultrasound vs MRI), the timing of imaging, and the use of brain injury scoring systems, should be considered when assessing preterm brain injury on neuroimaging. White matter injury is one of the most frequent forms of brain injury in preterm neonates and an important predictor of adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes. This presentation will examine the comparative performance of routine head ultrasound and conventional brain MRI in the detection of brain injury in the preterm neonate and will explore more specifically the multiple dimensions of white matter injury.
About the speaker:
Mireille is a Neonatologist currently completing a research-intensive fellowship in Neonatal Neurology at The Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto. After completing medical school and Paediatric residency at Université Laval, in Quebec City, she trained in Neonatology at the University of Ottawa. Her research aims to contribute to a better understanding of the brain changes and neurodevelopmental outcomes of preterm neonates.
There will be an interactive Q&A discussion after the presentation.
