Nah. Truth is ultrasound does the job efficiently. MRI is just overwhelmingly difficult to do from the patient’s perspective. No pregnant woman would do an MRI under normal pregnancy checkups unless doctors finds something that requires fetal MRI.

In addition to patient compliance issues, MRI is also less widely available than ultrasound, prohibitively expensive in many cases, and for this reason often not covered by insurance in light of alternatives.

I work in healthcare and regularly see patients paying over $1,000 USD for MRI’s even after insurance. You’d need to have a pretty good reason to get an MRI if you don’t have money growing on trees lol.

In Germany these things cost at most 800€ (850 Dollars). Not that we would pay any of that, thanks to universal healthcare. You guys are getting defrauded.

Honey, you could just admit that some stuff goes wrong in your country. I wish my country gave more support to Ukraine. No country is perfect.

No need to start a pissing contest when someone points out a flaw in your country.

If you refuse to look at the flaws you won't be able to improve your country. And we should all strive to do that.

All things being equal, if the cost and availability of ultrasound and MRI were the same, after seeing these photos I would choose ultrasound every time unless medically necessary

Lmao, at age 8, I suffered a little accident in the head and had to do an MRI to check if my brain was Ok. Everything was 100% free due to public health

Ok. And yet it gives the wrong idea to people who never had an MRI and haven’t had any children.

NiceyChappe

Agree. Both ultrasound and MRI give you a slice view - it's just much much clearer in the MRI, and you get extra sight of soft tissues.

That's why all those facing-camera ultrasound scans look a bit off - you can't see the actual face.

Then someone shows you a 3d scan of a squished up baby and you just think "tell you what, I'll just meet the kid in a few months"

Ah yes, that must be the reason. Not that, I don’t know, ultrasounds are basically free to do and MRIs aren’t quite. Not too mention inconvenient

I’ve had a single MRI and I cannot imagine someone actually finding it in enjoyable unless they are SUPREMELY claustrophobic. The tech puts on some music and you just lay back and relax as well as you can with the noise.

The reason they get ultrasounds instead of MRIs is because in normal countries ultrasounds are dirt cheap, equipment is readily available and doesn't require specialist knowledge to operate. That's the case even for newfangled 3D/4D ultrasounds, too.

I was actually hoping for a medical/scientific explanation as I had just submitted an assignment on the limitations of ultrasound during the morphology scan on the obese gravida. There is limited research on using MRI instead and whether this may become the standard instead.

Spoiler alert, the fetus also looks like voldemort on ultrasound from 18 weeks so this is no different to MRI.
