  1. Kappa coefficient was used for percentage of agreement
  2. χ2 (p) χ2 and p values for chi square test for comparing between the two categories, NPV negative predictive value, PPV positive predictive value
  3. *Statistically significant at p < 0.05
  4. @Abnormal outcome was assessed both clinically as cerebral palsy and by MRI as different patterns of brain injury
