Am J Obstet Gynecol. 1994 Jan;170(1 Pt 1):32-3. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9378(94)70379-5.


A 3-year follow-up study was carried out on 20 children examined in utero with echo-planar magnetic resonance imaging when fetal compromise had been demonstrated or was suspected. There was no demonstrable increase in the occurrence of disease or disability (including hearing deficit) that could be related to echo-planar imaging techniques.
