As tentativas iniciais de estimativa do peso fetal pela ultrassonografia utilizavam medidas realizadas no exame bidimensional, tais como distancia biparietal (DBP), circunferencia cefalica (CC), circunferencia abdominal (CA), comprimento do femur (CF) e comprimento do umero (CU) (19,20) e, apesar da variedade de formulas para estimar peso fetal, nenhuma delas e completamente aceita visto que a margem de erro varia entre 7 a 10% (6), um percentual critico e que aumenta o risco de insucesso nas situacoes extremas onde a estimativa de peso fetal e fundamental para a decisao de interrupcao da gestacao e da via de parto.

Four pregnant female Guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus) were enrolled and the gestational age was determined ultrasonographically by measuring the fetal biparietal diameter [15] using a real-time B-mode ultrasound scanner (SIUI V900, China) equipped with a 7.5 MHz, linear-array transducer and applying the formula of Y = -0.00043[X.sup.2] + 0.06881X 0.75941; where Y = gestation dayand X = biparietal diameter (cm).
