Abstract

Placenta accreta is abnormal placental adherence or invasion of the myometrium or extrauterine structures. It is increasing in incidence because of increasing number of cesarean sections and is one of the main causes of excessive postpartum hemorrhage. Recognition of this entity is crucial because improved outcomes have been shown when the antenatal diagnosis of placenta accreta is made. Ultrasound is the first-line tool; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is complementary. Ultrasound and MRI features and MRI protocols will be reviewed.
