The surge in the development of fast magnetic resonance (MR) techniques has revolutionized our ability to image the pregnant patient and the fetus. Fast MR imaging techniques provide excellent resolution for imaging the maternal and fetal anatomies without the need for sedation. This article addresses the use of fast MR imaging techniques in the evaluation of the pregnant patient for adnexal masses, pelvimetry, hydroureteronephrosis of pregnancy, and placenta accreta. In addition, fetal anomalies for which MR imaging has proved useful, such as ventriculomegaly, arachnoid cysts, and abdominal masses, are described.
