OBJECTIVE To compare first-trimester placental volume in chromosomally abnormal and normal pregnancies. METHODS Placental volumes were routinely recorded at the time of nuchal translucency thickness measurement at 10-13 weeks of gestation. This was done using customized three-dimensional ultrasound equipment and measurements were then converted to the placental quotient (placental volume/fetal crown-rump length). The possible difference in placental quotient between chromosomally normal and… CONTINUE READING
