Fetal ventriculomegaly is one of the most frequently diagnosed abnormalities detected prenatally. The finding of additional subtle abnormalities can facilitate accurate prognoses, which may range from normal outcomes to significant neurodevelopmental sequelae. Pathogenesis and imaging patterns of ventriculomegaly and hydrocephalus in the fetus based on the pattern-recognition approach using fetal MRI are reviewed in this paper. This radiological approach may shed light on clinical course prediction and therapeutic efficacy of hydrocephalus in the fetus.
