OBJECTIVE In most recent studies, fetal respiratory movements have been measured with real-time and Doppler echography. We describe an alternative approach using photogrammetry that provides more objective measurements. METHODS Respiratory movements were studied in 28 women with uncomplicated pregnancies of 30-38 weeks' gestation. Fetal echographic images(More)
