Although ultra­sound (US) ­remains the ­gold stan­dard in foe­tal imag­ing, in ute­ro mag­net­ic res­o­nance (MR) imag­ing of the foe­tal ner­vous ­system may be use­ful in the ­late stag­es of preg­nan­cy. The ­authors per­formed MR scan­ning in preg­nant wom­en in ­whose foe­tus­es US exam­ina­tion had ­shown hydro­ceph­a­lus and neu­ral ­tube ­defects (NTDs). These cas­es are def­i­nite­ly diag­nosed as “hope­less” at ­such a ­late ­stage. In ­this ­report, ­three preg­nant ­patients are pre­sent­ed to illus­trate the mor­pho­log­i­cal imag­ing fea­tures, and ­their out­come is dis­cussed. This ­report is an exam­ple of how radio­log­i­cal inves­ti­ga­tions can be ­most val­u­able, ­when US and MR imag­ing are ­used as com­ple­men­tary in imag­ing of the foe­tus­es.
