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.

Steinberg Diagnostic is proud to employ a diverse group of powerful women throughout our organization. In honor of International Women's Day we brought together our female doctors, executives, directors and chief technologists to talk about what it means to be a woman in business, who they look up to and more. Join the conversation and get to know these incredible women.
We spoke with the women leaders at SDMI and reminded them that 75% of management is female, see their reactions and hear what it means to them to work for an organization that is 100% local and 100% behind their women.
