What to Expect
Typically, all imaging and consults are performed on the same day to avoid repeat visits to the hospital. Fetal MRI and ultrasounds (including dedicated fetal heart ultrasounds) are performed in the morning or early afternoon so that the images can be interpreted by our fetal imaging experts. These results are then communicated to the maternal-fetal specialists, surgeons, geneticists, and other subspecialists so that a treatment and delivery plan can be created for the mother and her family. The mother and family will get to meet with the entire maternal-fetal team to discuss the treatment and delivery plan recommendations. The results are also communicated to the health care providers that referred you to our center.
