BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to explore the application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) image indexing in the assessment of cerebral injury of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) neonate.
METHODS: The clinical data of 100 HIE children, who were admitted to the Department of Radiology, Xuzhou Children’s Hospital, Jiangsu, from June 2013 to June 2014, were statistically analyzed.
RESULTS: Among the imaging data of 100 HIE children, the detection rate and false negative rate were 91.4% and 8.6%, respectively. The MRI detection rate was 100%. There was significant correlation between clinical indexing and CT indexing and MRI indexing (coefficient of contingency 0.731 and 0.723, P<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: MRI and CT image indexing could be used as important diagnostic indications in the assessment of cerebral injury of HIE neonate. MRI had a higher detection rate for abnormality than CT, it could detect the basal ganglia damage earlier, and CT could identify subarachnoid hemorrhage, both methods were valuable in clinical applications.
