“Utility of MRI With Doppler Ultrasound Gating for Advanced Fetal Monitoring”
We will test an ultrasound device that uses sound waves to detect the fetal heart beat, and use this device to tell the MRI scanner when to collect pictures of the fetal heart. This will help freeze motion of the fetal heart, to make MRI pictures sharper. This will be important for assessing human fetal heart disease, an active area of research at our institution.
Device - SMART-SYNC LM02
