PurposeWe investigated the developmental changes in the unaffected contralateral lungs of patients with isolated left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) using signal intensity ratios on prenatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and determined whether these changes correlated with clinical outcomes.MethodsWe performed 47 fetal MRI screens on 30 patients with isolated left-sided CDH. A cohort of 88 fetuses was selected as the control. We calculated the lung-to-liver signal intensity… CONTINUE READING
