Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intrauterine growth was studied by serial ultrasonic measurements of biparietal diameter (BPD), femur length (FL) and abdominal circumference (AC) in 241 normal low risk obstetric patients. These measurements were used to construct normal ultrasonic fetal weight and length curve. The data correlate well with the already established, postnatal weight and length curves after 28 weeks of gestation. The fetal ponderal index curve was compared with postnatal ponderal index curves available. Antenatal recognition of fetal weight, length and ponderal index can be used to evaluate pregnancies at risk for altered fetal growth.
