Abstract.Background: Pulmonary hypoplasia is a common cause of neonatal death. Despite the recent advances in prenatal diagnosis with US, the diagnosis of pulmonary hypoplasia is difficult. The recent application of fast MR imaging may provide additional valuable information. Objective: To evaluate pulmonary hypoplasia in the fetus with MRI. Materials and methods: The subjects comprised 23 fetuses (18–40 weeks' gestation), including major anomalies diagnosed on fetal ultrasonography (n = 20… CONTINUE READING
