We present a preliminary quantitative morphometry analysis of the fetal brain using clinical MR imaging. Our segmentation's and reconstruction's pipeline do not use any anatomical prior from atlases, thus our method can potentially answer clinically relevant question such as the true developmental age of the fetus without being biased by its biological age.
