Fetal Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a vital tool for
determining fetal neuropathologies than any other
imaging modalities due to better soft tissue contrast.
After analyzing the the eighty datasets and consultation
with the radiologist we have come to a conclusion that
these datasets represent four neuropathologies such as
Occipital Encephalocele ,Occipital meningocele, Sacral
meningocele, Lumbar meningocele.These datasets are
subjected to manual segmentation to find out the extend
of protrusion of the abnormality to help the doctors to
take timely decision whether to do fetal surgery,
perform the surgery after delivery or to terminate in
case of high risk pregnancies.
