PMID:  2006950     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Presented are three cases of fetal death, all of which occurred within 3 days of a normal biophysical profile. Despite the excellent record of this antepartum test in predicting fetal well-being, there is a low incidence of false-negative tests; increasing the frequency of testing will not prevent all false-negative tests.
