PMID:  6466578     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Calculation of the product of crown-rump length and trunk area (CRL x TA), as measured by ultrasound between 34 and 36 weeks and combined with accurate assessment of gestational age in early pregnancy, was previously shown to be highly effective in detecting the small-for-dates fetus in a largely unselected series of patients. To assess the value of this two-stage schedule in high-risk pregnancies, 202 patients with singleton pregnancies at risk of fetal growth retardation were studied. Of the 53 babies that were small-for-dates at birth, 49 (92%) were identified in advance by CRL x TA measurement. In contrast to previous findings, measurement of trunk area (TA) alone was similarly effective, identifying in advance 48 (91%) of these small-for-dates babies.
