OBJECTIVE: Several ultrasound methods including intrapartum translabial ultrasound (ITU) head station, angle of progression (AOP), head-perineum distance (HPD) and head-symphysis distance (HSD) have been suggested to assess fetal head station during labor. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between the ultrasound parameters and to compare them with digital palpation. METHODS: We analyzed 106 stored volume dataset pairs that had been acquired from primiparous women at term with prolonged first stage of labor at Stavanger University Hospital, Norway. The volumes were acquired with a 3D transducer applied between the labia majora in a mid-sagittal plane and perineally in a transverse plane. Digitally palpated head station and cervical dilatation were also noted. The results were compared using regression and correlation coefficients. RESULTS: There were good correlations between ITU head station and HPD (r=0,71), between ITU head station and HSD (r=0,76) and between HSD and HPD (r=0,76). Palpated head station correlated only mildly with ITU head station (r=0.52). Cervical dilatation showed low correlation with ITU head station (r=0,30). CONCLUSION: The ultrasound parameters showed a high degree of correlation but only medium correlation to vaginally palpated fetal station.
