The purpose of this study was to perform fetal cardiac MRI using a newly developed Doppler ultrasound sensor (DUS) for external fetal cardiac gating in a human fetus for the first time. For the first time, cine cardiac MRI could be performed in a human fetus using a newly developed DUS device and dedicated software for fetal cardiac triggering. Fetal cardiac functional parameters revealed high agreement in comparison with standard fetal echocardiography.
