Fetal external ear
deformities sometimes indicate that a chromosomal abnormality is present. This
study aimed to demonstrate the feasibility of fetal MRI in the evaluation of
auricular deformities, as well as the added value of external auditory canal atresia.
We calculated the diagnostic sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of fetal
MRI and described the imaging features. Our study showed that fetal MRI can
provide valuable information to assist in the diagnosis of external ear
