Abstract EN

-Background Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a critical pediatric disease with challenges in diagnosis.

Many diagnostic tools have been used to diagnose this condition.

Among all these tools, MRI with the advanced sequence; diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) plays a more vital role in early detection of this condition.

In this research we emphasized the role of DW-MRI in the diagnosis of HIE.

Aim of work The aim of this work is to evaluate the role of DW-MRI in detection and grading of HIE.

Patients and methods This is a prospective study performed for 1 year (from January 2017 to January 2018).

The studied group included 20 full-term neonates admitted to NICU of Assiut University Hospital with provisional diagnosis of HIE.

All patients underwent brain imaging by conventional and DW-MRI.

Results There was a moderate significant agreement between conventional MRI and DWI (P = 0.023) regarding both diagnosis and grading of HIE.

Conclusion MR-DWI is the preferred modality of imaging in diagnosis and grading of hypoxic-ischemic injury due to its high sensitivity and easy interpretation with no need for contrast administration.
