Congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAM), bronchopulmonary sequestrations (BPS), and hybrid lesions are the most common congenital lung lesions. They are primarily diagnosed prenatally via ultrasound and further characterized by MRI. While most affected neonates are asymptomatic at birth, some may experience varying severities of respiratory distress requiring intervention. We seek to develop a prognostic model for prediction of post-natal outcomes in patients with congenital lung lesions using fetal MRI calculated observed to expected normal lung volume (O/E NLV).
