PURPOSE To measure both volume and signal intensity of the fetal lung at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and to evaluate the clinical use of this method to predict fetal pulmonary hypoplasia. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 87 fetuses evaluated with MR imaging at 24-39 weeks of gestation were classified into a control group with good respiratory outcome (group A, n = 58) or a poor outcome group with severe respiratory disturbance after birth (group B, n = 29). Planimetric measurement of… CONTINUE READING
