OBJECTIVES Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is a diagnostic challenge, since ultrasound fetal biometry (UFB) provides only a 50% detection rate for IUGR. This may be attributable to the fact that UFB does not allow a direct evaluation of functional placental tissue. We hypothesized that direct assessment, using magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging (DT-MRI), can provide better detection of IUGR by reliably distinguishing between normal and non-functional placental tissue.
