OBJECTIVES To investigate the correlation between fetal lung volume (FLV), measured with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and postnatal mortality in newborns with prenatally diagnosed isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). METHODS In a 4-year prospective multicenter study, 77 fetuses with isolated CDH diagnosed between 20 and 33 weeks' gestation underwent fast spin-echo T2-weighted lung MRI. These MRI-FLV measurements were compared with a previously published normative curve… CONTINUE READING
