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.
