Abnormal amniotic fluid volume is associated with increased maternal risk and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Until the advent of ultrasonography, the invasive nature of amniotic fluid volume assessment limited its clinical utility. Refinements in quantifying the noninvasive sonographic assessment of oligohydramnios and hydramnios have improved the ability of clinicians to identify at-risk pregnancies. This article reviews the available methods of amniotic fluid volume assessment and outlines a comprehensive approach to sonographic screening and monitoring.
