BACKGROUND Despite the ultrasound (US) based lung-to-head ratio (LHR) and first results of fetal lung volume (FLV) determination in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), there is no reliable prenatal parameter for the clinical course and outcome of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), in particular for the need of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). PATIENTS AND METHOD MR FLV measurement was evaluated in 36 fetuses with CDH using T2-weighted half-Fourier acquisition single… CONTINUE READING
