Fortunately, advances in technology have helped improve the diagnosis and treatment of high-risk pregnant women. UCSF provides specialized fetal imaging techniques, such as MRI, to detect various conditions in the mother and baby. Our Prenatal Diagnosis Center offers the latest tests used to evaluate a developing baby. Some of these tests are available in only a few centers nationwide, and can be performed as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy.
