Brief Answer:
Yes,MRI scan is required.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your cousin health care.
I have gone through your history and reports and understand your concerns about it.
In her reports it is showing severe IUGR( intrauterine growth retardation).
So in her case MRI brain is important to rule out any neurodevelopmental abnormalities in foetus due to severe IUGR.
It is important to see future viability of foetus and other foetal outcomes.
Because placental insufficiency also plays a important role in her case.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.
