Clinical/methodical issue: Evaluation and confirmation of fetal pathologies previously suspected or diagnosed with ultrasound. Standard radiological methods: Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Methodical innovations: Technique for prenatal fetal examination. Performance: Fetal MRI is an established supplementary technique to prenatal ultrasound. Achievements: Fetal MRI should only be used as an additional method in prenatal diagnostics and not for routine screening. Practical recommendations: Fetal MRI should only be performed in perinatal medicine centers after a previous level III ultrasound examination.

    The prenatal diagnosis of fetal bone and small parts is a challenging task to the variable disorders and large number of possible diagnosis. Fetal limb anomalies may be congenital or acquired in utero. The former occur as anomalies either systemically or, in some limbs, due to hereditary or...

    Antenatal hydronephrosis (ANH) is a frequent anomaly detected on fetal ultrasound scans. There is no consensus recommendation for the postnatal follow-up and/or the necessity to perform a voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) to diagnose vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). We conducted a...

    Congenital tumors form a unique group among pediatric neoplasms. They are different from other tumor groups in this population not only due to the onset time but also to their histopathology, anatomic location, biologic behavior and prognosis. The development of fetal MRI allowed early diagnosis...

    Background: Early surgery is recommended for asymptomatic severe mitral regurgitation (MR), because of increased postoperative left ventricular (LV) dysfunction in patients with late surgery. On the other hand, recent reports emphasized a "watchful waiting" process for the determination of the...

    Acquired central nervous system (CNS) lesions are often subtle; therefore, the prenatal diagnosis of these lesions is extremely important. The fetal ultrasound examination and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are two important imaging methods that give an insight into these types lesions. The...
