    Dystonia in cerebral palsy is debilitating but underdiagnosed. This precludes targeted treatment which is most effective if instituted early. Deep grey matter injury is associated with dystonic CP but can be challenging to quantify. Objective and clinically-feasible identification of injury that typically precedes dystonia could help determine which children are at highest risk for developing dystonia and thus facilitate early dystonia detection.
