Ultrasound phantom study. The first three rows above the dashed line show the determination of the EDD and apply equally to live births as well as stillbirths. COMMENTS The algorithm that is described to estimate GA at death in cases of stillbirth incorporates readily available clinical data and simple examination of the infant after delivery. The SCRN conducted a population-based case-control study of women with stillbirths and live births from to in five geographic catchment areas. Poor predictor of macrosomic fetuses in diabetic mothers.
An evaluation of two methods for measuring fetal head and body circumferences.
AN ALGORITHM FOR THE ESTIMATION OF GESTATIONAL AGE AT THE TIME OF FETAL DEATH
The rationale for employing multiple parameters for fetal dating is that when two or more parameters predict the same end point, the probability of correctly predicting that end point is increased. Calculation formulas are provided in Appendix B. By using the website or clicking OK we will assume you are happy to receive all cookies from us. A number of factors may contribute to variation or inaccuracy in the BPD measurement. In clinical practice, one would use the estimated gestational age in weeks and days from the earliest ultrasound report while the fetus was alive, and express the estimate in decimal form for further calculations.
