Fetal stomach dimensions were measured sonographically in 152 fetuses with gestational ages ranging from nine to 40 weeks. Nomograms of the mean +/- 2 standard deviations (SD) for the longitudinal, anteroposterior, and transverse diameters of the fetal stomach were generated throughout pregnancy. A linear growth function was observed across gestational age, and a high degree of correlation existed between gestational age and the transverse (r = 0.809, P less than .0001), anteroposterior (r = 0… CONTINUE READING
