Fetal Dynamic Phase-Contrast Mr Angiography Using Ultrasound Gating And Comparison With Doppler Ultrasound Measurements
from European Radiology
OBJECTIVES: To investigate the feasibility of fetal phase-contrast (PC)-MR angiography of the descending aorta (AoD) using an MR-compatible Doppler ultrasound sensor (DUS) for fetal cardiac gating and to compare velocimetry with Doppler ultrasound measurements. METHODS: In this prospective study, 2D PC-MR angiography was performed in 12 human fetuses (mean gestational age 32.8 weeks) using an MR-compatible DUS for gating of the fetal heart at 1.5 T.
