Fetal MRI is a useful investigation to visualize congenital anomalies and allow for appropriate counselling and timely intervention. Since early 2017, our hospital has begun to perform fetal MRI from obstetric referrals. 18 pregnant patients underwent fetal MRI for suspected fetal anomalies. The neurological system was the most common region of concern during fetal MRI (67%). When compared to antenatal ultrasonography, fetal MRI provided significant additional and/or change in diagnostic information in 44% of patients , and results in change in postnatal outcome and/or facilitation of postnatal management in 44% of patients, including termination of pregnancy and prompt surgical intervention.
