Post-mortem MRI imaging (PMMR) is rapidly becoming a useful tool in the minimally invasive autopsy of fetal and perinatal death allowing clinical diagnosis and assessment of major congenital abnormalities. A recent study suggested that magnetisation transfer values may be a more specific measure of post-mortem heart abnormalities, but there has little application of MT imaging in this area. We performed a preliminary exploration of MT contrast and MT pulse optimisation in whole body PMMR in neonates as part of a multi-parameter mapping protocol.
