ORTEGA, Ximena et al. Foetal magnetic resonance imaging in the pre-surgical assessment of spinal dysraphism. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2016, vol.22, n.3, pp.133-139. ISSN 0717-9308.

Abstract. Spinal dysraphism is an important indication for foetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), considering the evaluation of potential candidates for intrauterine surgery. Foetal MRI has proved to be superior to 2D and 3D ultrasound for the posterior fossa, brain stem, corpus callosum, and cortical development abnormalities. The description and level of spinal injury, hydrocephalus, magnitude of cerebellum herniation, and associated injuries, are valuable information, which is useful for the preoperative assessment, as well as for the comparison with postnatal studies.

Keywords : Spinal dysraphism; Magnetic resonance imaging; Ultrasound; Prenatal; Central nervous system; Foetal diseases; Prenatal diagnosis.
