Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGES
Abstract:
An embodiment of the invention relates to a method for providing magnetic resonance images of a foetus or a mother carrying a foetus, the method comprising the steps of: applying an ultrasonic transceiver to the mother's body and inducing an ultrasonic signal into the mother's and foetus ' s body; receiving a returned ultrasonic signal and providing an output signal; - processing the output signal in order to generate a trigger signal indicating the heart activity of the foetus; triggering a magnetic resonance imaging device taking the trigger signal into account; and generating magnetic resonance images of the foetus or the mother by using the triggered magnetic resonance imaging device.
