Data Collection Event

1 Year Follow up

Infants underwent an assessment at 1 year of age to examine anthropometrics, motor and cognitive function and cerebral MRI. A physical assessment was performed including a Neuropediatric examination (based on Touwen, 1979), measurement of height, weight, head circumference, upper arm circumference, subscapular skinfold thickness. Motor and cognitive skills were examined by use of the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID) - Psychomotor Index and Mental Index. Quantitative MRI (2D T1 weighted inversion recovery, T2 weighted spin echo sequences at 1.5 T) was performed to measure volumes for a number of brain structures.
