MRI of conjoined twins illustrating advances in fetal imaging.


Journal Article

Complex congenital fetal abnormalities are optimally evaluated with both ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. With the advent of ultrafast imaging sequences, fetal imaging has significantly improved. We present two cases of conjoined thoracoomphalopagus twins to discuss this unusual anomaly and to illustrate the recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging of the fetus.
