The Role of Fetal Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Current Fetal Medicine
Free PMC article
In open spina bifida we studied the use of MRI for the assessment of the posterior fossa and prevalence of supratentorial anomalies before and after in utero repair. New postprocessing techniques were applied to evaluate fetal brain development in this population compared to controls. In fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, we evaluated the brain development in comparison to controls. Diffusion weighted imaging was applied to study difference between fetuses with proven first trimester cytomegalovirus infection and controls. Finally, we investigated the value of third trimester fetal brain MRI after treatment for complicated monochorionic diamniotic pregnancies.
