From 298 normal fetuses, we established normative curves of the development of the brain in relation to gestational age and to body weight. Means and standard deviations were calculated. There exist good curvilinear relationships, expressed by polynomial models, between brain weight--body weight and brain weight--gestational age with a wider scatter in large fetuses. These results confirm literature data. Subsequently, fresh and fixed brain weights were analysed. In addition, the development of… CONTINUE READING
