Abstract

Direct correlation of MR images of fetuses during the late first and early second trimesters with anatomic atlases could result in a mistaken diagnosis of delayed or abnormal development of the posterior fossa contents because of a time lag in the detection of structures on MR images. An MR template of normal cerebellar development would be useful to avoid confusion of normal development with abnormal development and to identify the expected developmental features when provided the estimated gestational age of a fetus.
