Estimated fetal weight: applicability to small- and large-for-gestational-age fetus.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Ultrasonic formulas using femur length and abdominal circumference with or without biparietal diameter were found to be highly accurate in predicting the weight of normal-sized term infants. The small-for-gestational age fetus, however, was overestimated and the large-for-gestational-age fetus was underestimated. The fetal weight formulas tested that were appropriate for the entire study group were not applicable to those fetuses having altered growth.
