At Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, our goal is to optimize the care and developmental potential for those facing neurologic diagnoses from before birth to young adulthood. The following articles shine a light on these and other efforts by our teams in the Richard D. Wood Jr. Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment and Division of Neurology to advance fetal neurologic care.
- Understanding and Preventing Developmental Hypoxic Brain Injury
- How a Fetal Evaluation Can Help a Fetus with a Potential Neurologic Diagnosis
- Supporting Families Through Prenatal Diagnosis of a Fetal Brain Anomaly
