Survey on Neuroimaging of Premature Infants


By: Mohamed El-Dib, MD

In preparation for the Combined Newborn Brain Society and Brigham and Women’s Hospital Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine Grand Rounds titled “Neuroimaging in the Preterm Infant: Where Are We in 2020?”, we sent a survey to explore current practices regarding neuroimaging in preterm infants in 2020.

The survey was sent to 2761 person representing NBS members, NNCC SIG and NBS email list. We received four hundred and forty responses from 340 centers and 54 countries. The median Number of beds = 36 (IQR= 20-53), 306 (90.3%) are delivery hospitals, and 288 (85.5%) have MRI available.
