ACADEMICS are on the hunt for mums-to-be to help with a pioneering study.
The University of Sheffield project needs volunteers across South Yorkshire to help them look at the role of MRI scanning during pregnancy.
Expectant mums, who are over 16 years-old and at least 18 weeks pregnant, are being invited to take part in the research which has been running across the country since 2011 and is funded by the National Institute for Health Research Health Technology Assessment Programme.
Volunteers will have an MRI scan, performed by an expert consultant, to look at the baby’s brain.
Some volunteers may also be invited for a detailed ultrasound scan.
Neither of the scans carry any risk to your baby and participants will be given an MRI picture of their baby to keep and a £10 voucher.
For more information or to register your interest in the study please contact 0114 271 3584 or email MRI@sheffield.ac.uk.
