Echo planar imaging is a form of MRI with short image acquisition times, which permits in utero fetal imaging without motion artefacts. Echo planar imaging has been used to measure accurately fetal organ volume and to assess placental function. Two small animal studies have suggested the possibility of intrauterine growth restriction consequent upon MRI. We thus performed a prospective study of pregnancies in which fetuses were exposed to echo planar imaging, compared with a control group in… CONTINUE READING
