To stratify neonates with different outcomes of hypoxic ischemia (HI) within few hours after birth for the subsequent therapeutic hypothermia, the spatiotemporal profile of MR measurements between two severity outcome groups was depicted as early at 6 h after insult. Changes in volumes, ADC and FA values were observed among different brain regions, suggesting different susceptibility of brain regions to HI in the acute phase of HI.
