OBJECTIVE To measure magnetic resonance parameters T1 and T2 of the fetal lungs and investigate the relationship of these parameters to changes in volume and gestation. DESIGN Prospective cross-sectional study. SETTING Large teaching hospital in Nottingham and the Magnetic Resonance Centre at the University of Nottingham. POPULATION Normal pregnancies from 20 weeks to term. METHODS T1, T2, and lung volume were measured in the fetus using echo-planar magnetic resonance imaging. MAIN… CONTINUE READING
