In the second half of the twentieth century, true antepartum fetal assessment became possible, mainly due to the advent of real-time ultrasound. Initially, the most widely used form of antepartum fetal assessment was electronic fetal heart rate monitoring, through the nonstress test or the oxytocin-induced contraction stress test. It was soon realized, however, that these forms of monitoring had significant limitations. The biophysical profile allows a more thorough evaluation of fetal well-being and has the potential to significantly reduce the false-positive rate of the nonstress test/contraction stress test.
