Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Eighty-two normal fetuses were scanned from 18 to 41 weeks of gestation. The following M-mode measurements were correlated with the abdominal circumference: diastolic biventricular outer (r = 0.951) and inner (r = 0.948) dimensions; diastolic right (r = 0.942) and left (r = 0.925) internal dimensions; tricuspid (r = 0.916) and mitral (r = 0.900) valve opening excursions; and right (r = 0.774), left (r = 0.731), and interventricular septal (r = 0.753) wall thickness. Polynomial regression demonstrated that linear regression best described the data from which the mean and 5 per cent and 95 per cent confidence limits for predicted M-mode measurements were computed for the abdominal circumference between 12 and 35 cm.
