“Fetal MRI allows for detailed imaging of the developing fetus in utero. Fast sequences are required due to fetal movement 1. Fetal MRI is most commonly utilized when ultrasound (USS) findings are equivocal. Fetal anatomy can be evaluated in detail including the brain, upper aerodigestive tract, thorax, pelvis and abdomen. Imaging can be performed from the second trimester 2. Biosafety and small fetal size in the first trimester makes fetal MRI of equivocal/controversial use prior to the second trimester 2.” Read More
