Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to present illustrative cases highlighting the value of fetal MRI as a problem-solving tool in evaluating anomalies of the fetal chest, abdomen, and pelvis that are being evaluated for fetal therapy. CONCLUSION. Fetal MRI is an increasingly valuable noninvasive tool for evaluating fetal anomalies in the age of fetal therapy. Although ultrasound remains the primary diagnostic imaging modality, MRI can provide additional information to assist parental counseling and patient care.
