Serial ultrasonic measurements were performed in 67 Caucasian fetuses from 20 weeks' gestation until term to derive reference standards for abdominal circumference (AC) and estimated fetal weight (EFW). The variances of both AC and EFW increased with gestational age. Four mathematical models (linear, quadratic, Gompertz and Rossavik) were fitted to the log(10)(AC) and log(10)(EFW) data from each fetus using least squares regression analysis. The standard deviations of the residual error were… CONTINUE READING
