Diagnostic image quality of MRI can be hampered by fetal movements during data acquisition which may limit its diagnostic use (1;2). We propose an interactive real-time MRI technique which may serve as an alternative to traditional fetal MRI for anthropometrics or as a supplement for representation of fetal brain structures in cases in which fetal motion causes challenges in relation to obtaining optimal slice planes using conventional MRI techniques.
