Fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion (FETO) is a novel technique to treat cases of isolated severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Although there are benefits of MRI over ultrasound in assessing lung volumes, it is unknown whether there are benefits of MRI for localizing the tracheal balloon. This is a retrospective study reviewing the imaging characteristics of FETO in patients who underwent both MRI and ultrasound exams done to localize tracheal balloons.
