PURPOSE To establish in utero MRI-scanning of mouse implantation sites in a 1.5 Tesla whole-body human clinical scanner for evaluation of impaired implantation, placental or developmental defects due to genetic alterations. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pregnant C57Bl/6 wild-type and Cx31-deficient mice revealing placental defects were analyzed in utero using a 1… CONTINUE READING
