T1-weighted images allow visualisation of the fetal colon. Microcolon is important to recognize since it aids to accurate diagnosis in patients referred for fetal MRI with gastrointestinal abnormalities. In our retrospective study, we reviewed the T1-weighted images in fetuses with microcolon and tried to define the optimal plane andsequence (FGRE versus 3D dual-echo SPGR) for evaluation of the microcolon.
