Figure 3 (A and B): (A and B) Comparison of Mercator/flat earth map of a child with partial prolonged hypoxic ischemic injury with that of a child who had a normal MRI report. (A) The Mercator/flat earth map if this 2-year-old child with partial prolonged hypoxic ischemic injury at birth demonstrates bilateral atrophy (thinning) of the peri-Rolandic cortex (straight arrows), localized separation of the hemispheres due to anterior para-sagittal atrophy with associated ulegyria (curved arrows) and prominence of the Sylvian fissures due to peri-Sylvian atrophy (asterisks). (B) In contrast, the Mercator/flat earth map of the child with the normal MRI scan demonstrates closely apposed pre- and post-central gyri, closely apposed hemispheres along the falx cerebri, and closely apposed temporal and frontal lobes at the Sylvian fissures. There is no prominence of the surface markings, indicating normal volume of the brain at these specific locations
