CARP study

Researchers at King’s College London and St Thomas’ Hospital are working to understand how the heart and the placenta work together to make sure that both your baby and you are healthy throughout pregnancy and beyond. If you currently pregnant with or without a diagnosis of high blood pressure/pre-eclampsia we would like to invite you to be part of our study!

What would I need to do?
This study involves having up to three (but typically one or two) MRI scans while you are pregnant. MRI is a non-invasive imaging technique without radiation, it is therefore safe to have an MRI in pregnancy. We get images with more details from your baby, your placenta and your heart including a video of your baby. The visit takes 2 hours and you can listen to your favorite music during the scan.

What if I have any questions?
You can read more information about the study on this website. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the study in more detail, please contact our research team.

This study was ethically reviewed and approved by the London – Dulwich Committee.
