Fetal MRI

This test is typically done in the 2nd or 3rd trimester to confirm a diagnosis found in an ultrasound and/or give additional information. A fetal MRI is used to evaluate congenital anomalies and abnormalities.

For this exam you will be asked to lay on your back or side and placed in the MRI scanner feet first. A coil (or camera) is placed on top of the abdomen, this is what receives the image information and sends it to the computer. Fetal MRI's are always done without contrast. You will be asked to hold your breath during each sequence, due to this a Fetal MRI may take longer than other MRI exams. Additionally if your fetus is very active on the day of the exam this may increase the length of the test.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are the lights in the MRI room so bright?

Some MRI exams require an IV injection, it is important for our technologists to have good lighting to be able to start an IV. If the light is too bright and uncomfortable please alert your technologist. We have eye/sleep masks available, these masks also help with claustrophobia and you get to keep it after your exam.

Why is it so cold in the MRI room?

MRI Machines use very powerful magnets to achieve the highest quality images. These magnets produce heat and need to be kept cold to function properly. If you feel too cold during your exam please alert your technologist and they will be happy to provide you with a blanket.
