OBJECTIVE To determine the accuracy of birth weight in different birth weight (BW) groups using widely accepted formulas for fetal weight estimation (EFW). The secondary purpose was to estimate the role of examiners on the accuracy of EFW. METHODS The cross-sectional data were obtained from 5612 pregnant women. Fetal weight was estimated for each fetus using the formulas of Campbell and Wilkin, Shepard, 2 formulas of Hadlock and Merz. Inclusion criteria were: singleton pregnancy, complete… CONTINUE READING
