Monitoring of fetal brain growth during the pregnancy period is essential to have a healthy fetus. Fetal brain volume is a biomarker to identify any deformity in the fetal brain. In this paper we propose a method to estimate the fetal brain volume by manually segmenting the MRI of human fetus.

Keywords: Fetal Brain; Fetal Brain Volume; Fetal MRI
