OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to develop a gestational age table by means of crown-rump length measurements in the first trimester in pregnancies conceived through in vitro fertilization. STUDY DESIGN: Ninety-four infertile women with singleton intrauterine pregnancies resulting from in vitro fertilization underwent ultrasonographic examinations in the first trimester. The relationship between gestational age (calculated with the day of oocyte retrieval used as day 14) and the crown-rump length was explored with regression analysis. RESULTS: A quadratic model demonstrated the best fit to the data, indicating a curvilinear relationship between crown-rump length and gestational age. Estimates of gestational age with crown-rump length measurements between 40 and 60 mm were observed to be similar to published tables, but outside this range the tables either overestimate or underestimate the true gestational age. CONCLUSION: A more accurate equation for gestational age estimation with crown-rump length measurements in early pregnancy has been developed with in vitro fertilization pregnancy data.
