As a response to IUGR, placental perfusion decreases due to placental insufficiency and eventually fetal Doppler ultrasonography (US) and fetal biometry
are affected (2-4).
Impact of replacing Chinese ethnicity-specific fetal biometry
charts with the INTERGROWTH-21st standard.
A singleton structurally normal ongoing pregnancy and accurate fetal biometry
was confirmed by ultrasonography (BCF Easi Scan, Dundalk, Ireland) at days 28, 43, 58, 73, and 88 of pregnancy.
and Doppler examination by ultrasonography and continuous external fetal monitoring by cardiotocography were carried out for each patient.
Clinical parameters including period of gestation, parity, type of breech and fetal biometry
One can do fetal Biometry
or Doppler ultrasound to see if the fetus is growing.
Their topics include physical principles and bioeffects of first trimester ultrasound, fetal biometry
and pregnancy dating in the first trimester, multiple pregnancies in the first trimester, the fetal gastrointestinal system, and the placenta and umbilical cord.
In fetal biometry
, the mean (SD) biparietal diameter (group 1: 35.69 (1.93) weeks; group 2: 35.19 (3.32) weeks), mean (SD) femur length (group 1: 34.09 (2.10) weeks; group 2: 33.19 (2.75) weeks and mean (SD) amniotic fluid index (group 1: 6.9 (3.41) cm; group 2: 7.6 (4.33) cm) were nearly same for both groups.
Evaluation of applicability of standard growth curves to Indian women by fetal biometry
. South Asian Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecology 2009;1(3):55-61.
Hadlock and other foreign fetal biometry
curves are used in Pakistan as there are no national normative data derived from local population.
The major strength of this paper relies on its prospective design and the use of repeated measurements of fetal biometry
. Also, we had repeated measurements of BPA and phthalates at the first and third trimester of pregnancy in almost 500 pregnant women, making this, to our knowledge, the largest and most extensive study on this topic.
