Turner Syndrome Clinical Study

For Soon-to-be-Born and Newborns with Turner Syndrome: Invitation to Participate in a Research Study of Early Brain Development

The purpose of this research study is to learn about early brain development in children with Turner Syndrome. We are interested in whether the size of certain brain structures can tell us something about a child’s development. Your child will have a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain in the first month of life at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  An MRI does not use X-rays or radiation.

The MRI is free of charge and we will reimburse your travel expenses. Clinical evaluations can be scheduled on the same day with Dr. Marsha Davenport, a pediatric endocrinologist who is an expert in Turner syndrome, and Dr. Maria Escolar, a pediatrician who is an expert in neurodevelopment.
