This study evaluated the clinical utility of zoomed diffusion-weighted echo-planar imaging (ZOOMit DWI) of the fetal brain. The effectiveness of the method was compared with conventional echo-planar DWI. Based on imaging analysis of 10 cases, the results showed that ZOOMit DWI exhibits markedly reduced susceptibility and distortion artifacts relative to conventional DWI. ZOOMit-DWI may serve as a viable alternative for the fetal brain assessment and pathology diagnosis.
