Normal ranges for a wide variety of biometrical parameters were established from cross‐sectional data on 1040 normal singleton pregnancies resulting in livebirth at term of normal, and appropriately grown infants. Patients were selected so that the birth weight distribution was similar to that reported by Yudkin and colleagues' and the ranges can, therefore, be used for any population that has a simular birth weight distribution.

Observational Clinical Trial
This is an international multicentre prospective cohort study to validate the Bayes theorem based algorithms for the screening of pre-eclampsia (PE) in the first-trimester of pregnancy… Expand
Fetal biometry between 20-42 weeks of gestation for Polish population.
Reference charts for Polish population are similar to foreign curves based on ultrasound fetometry reference, and Ultrasound method seems to be better than birthweight curves especially in preterm pregnancies. Expand

To formulate reference charts and equations for estimated fetal weight (EFW) from a large sample of fetuses and to compare those obtained for birth weight during the same study period and in the same single health authority. Expand
Sonographic fetal biometry charts for a Pakistani cohort.
This study aimed to develop growth centiles at different gestational weeks for fetal biparietal diameter, abdominal circumference, femur length and head circumference in a Pakistani cohort to help radiologists and clinicians in predicting dates of delivery, assessing fetal growth and identifying intrauterine fetal insufficiency.

Sex‐specific antenatal reference growth charts for uncomplicated singleton pregnancies at 15–40 weeks of gestation
The purpose of this study was to compare female and male fetuses in terms of intrauterine ultrasound growth measurements and to develop gestational‐age‐related charts based on a computerized perinatal database. Expand
Reference interval for fetal biometry in Italian population.
To the knowledge this is the first Italian study with the largest sample size ever reported in the literature, and newer charts of reference centiles for fetal biometric measurements are useful in the obstetrical clinical practice for the Italian population. Expand
Ethnic and maternal determinants of fetal growth in normal pregnancies
Evaluating the rate of growth in fetuses from different maternal ethnic groups using standard and novel ultrasound biometry measurements in normal pregnancy found that fetal growth in different ethnic groups is characterised by different growth patterns of skeletal and soft tissue biometry. Expand
Maternal hemodynamics, fetal biometry and Doppler indices in pregnancies followed up for suspected fetal growth restriction
To assess whether, in a cohort of patients with a small‐for‐gestational‐age (SGA) fetus with estimated fetal weight ≤ 10th percentile, maternal hemodynamics, fetal biometry and Doppler indices atExpand
Prediction of stillbirth from maternal factors, fetal biometry and uterine artery Doppler at 19–24 weeks
To evaluate the performance of screening for all stillbirths and those due to impaired placentation and unexplained or other causes using a combination of maternal factors, fetal biometry and uterineExpand

Charts for ultrasound dating of pregnancy based on crown–rump length and biparietal diameter and reference curves for normal fetal growth based on bipariet diameter, head circumference, transverse cerebellar diameter, abdominal circumference and femur length from 10 weeks of gestational age onwards are developed.

References intervals for fetal biometrical parameters.
These fetal size reference intervals are clinically relevant and can be used for populations with epidemiological features and distribution of neonatal birth weights similar to the authors' data. Expand
