The novel MR compatible CTG allowed an excellent trigger of the fetal heart rate. An evaluation of anatomical structures and functional information could be obtained from the cMRI. A CTG triggered fetal cardiac MRI might be of great impact in the evaluation of fetuses with complex congenital heart defects.
