Prenatal brain development can be affected by several conditions, and may be responsible for neurodevelopmental problems in childhood. Early diagnosis is essential to be able to intervene early and reduce the impact on postnatal life. “MULTI-FACT: Multi-centric study of Fetal Abnormal Cortical Trajectory with standardized and privacy preserving method on fetal MRI” is a collaborative research project under the umbrella of Era-net Neuron, with the aim of providing the global community with effective tools to improve prenatal diagnosis of abnormal neurodevelopment.
