Fetal Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a vital tool for determining fetal neuropathologies than any other imaging modalities due to better soft tissue contrast. After analyzing the the eighty datasets and consultation with the radiologist we have come to a conclusion that these datasets represent four neuropathologies such as Occipital Encephalocele ,Occipital meningocele, Sacral meningocele, Lumbar meningocele.These datasets are subjected to manual segmentation to find out the extend of protrusion of the abnormality to help the doctors to take timely decision whether to do fetal surgery, perform the surgery after delivery or to terminate in case of high risk pregnancies.
