OBJECTIVE To establish reference intervals for fetal lung growth. DESIGN Longitudinal observational study. SUBJECTS Fifty-eight women with initially uncomplicated singleton pregnancies were recruited from the antenatal population of a teaching hospital. Four women were excluded from the final analysis because of complications arising in their pregnancy. METHODS Each subject was serially scanned at monthly intervals. At each visit lung volume was measured using an ultrasound-based… CONTINUE READING
