Baby in Utero MRI

The role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in fetal imaging is expanding. The depth of structural information provided by MRI means it is more than just a useful adjunct to ultrasound, as several structures are more clearly visualised and many of the limitations of ultrasound are avoided. Currently, MRI is most frequently utilised with reference to the fetal central nervous system and is valuable in ventriculomegaly, agenesis of the corpus callosum and posterior fossa abnormalities.
