OBJECTIVE The study aims to demonstrate the value of the 'tail sign' in the assessment of Dandy-Walker malformation. METHODS A total of 31 fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), performed before 24 weeks of gestation after second-line ultrasound examination between May 2013 and September 2014, were examined retrospectively. All MRI examinations were performed using a 1.5 Tesla magnet without maternal sedation. RESULTS Magnetic resonance imaging diagnosed 15/31 cases of Dandy-Walker… CONTINUE READING
