Healthy growth and function of the placenta are important to support normal fetal development throughout the second and third trimester. T2* values affected by the tissue oxygenation could be a valuable tool to detect the placenta function. In this work, we collected T2* map for both health pregnancy and the pregnancy complicated by IUGR at different GA at 3.0 T and also investigated the relationship between them.
