BACKGROUND To compare antepartum ultrasonography with magnetic resonance imaging for prenatal diagnosis of malformations in the fetal urinary tract in high risk patients during the last trimester. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study involved 22 women and 24 fetuses with either severe oligohydramnios or ultrasonographically or clinically suspected abnormality(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare antepartum ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis and exclusion of malformations of the fetal neck, pharynx, skull base and posterior fossa in late pregnancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study involved 26 women and 27 fetuses with ultrasonographically or clinically suspected(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has any effect on fetal cardiotocographic (CTG) parameters or movement incidence. Sixteen mothers were examined during the last trimester at 28-39 weeks (mean 33 weeks; SD 4) of gestation due to a suspected fetal anomaly found in antenatal ultrasonography (US). MR imaging was(More)
Age-related deterioration in muscle performance is one of the major reasons for decreased functional capacity and disability in older people.

This observation suggests that female sex steroids may(More)
