Estimating fetal pose from 3D MRI has a wide range of applications including fetal motion tracking and prospective motion correction. Fetal pose estimation is challenging since fetuses may have different orientation and body configuration in utero. In this work, we propose a method for fetal pose estimation from low-resolution 3D EPI MRI using generative adversarial network. Results show that the proposed method produces a more robust estimation of fetal pose and achieves higher accuracy compared with conventional convolution neural network.
