OBJECTIVE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of prenatal ultrasonography and fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in fetuses with skeletal deformities (SD). METHODS Fourteen pregnant women of 21 - 34 weeks of gestation whose fetuses had SD on prenatal ultrasound (seven fetuses with spina bifida, four with complex malformation syndrome, two with scoliosis, and one with chondrodysplasia) were additionally investigated by fetal MRI using a 1.5T superconducting system with T1-and T2-weighted… CONTINUE READING
