The aim of this work was to noninvasively predict fetal lung immaturity with the ultrasonic gray level histogram width (GLHW), a form of clinical tissue characterization. The study included 22 fetuses in which infant respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS) developed post-delivery, and 25 fetuses without IRDS development. Independent receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis of fetal lung-to-liver GLHW ratios, fetal weights, gestational ages and the product of GLHW ratios by gestational ages… CONTINUE READING
