Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Fetal magnetic resonance imaging is becoming more used in the evaluation of complex fetal abnormalities. Rapid advances in the technology and application of fetal magnetic resonance imaging necessitate a review of this subject. RECENT FINDINGS: Diffusion-weighted imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy and functional magnetic resonance imaging may allow assessment of fetal brain even before anatomical abnormalities are demonstrated. We discuss the uses of fetal magnetic resonance imaging in better assessment of pulmonary hypoplasia, congenital diaphragmatic hernia and renal anomalies. SUMMARY: The additional information from fetal magnetic resonance imaging, beyond that obtained by ultrasound, is invaluable in prenatal counseling, delivery planning and planning for pre- or postnatal intervention. As intrauterine and neonatal surgery evolve, so will the utilization of fetal magnetic resonance imaging.
