Mothers who gave an informed consent and who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were examined ultrasonographically and their Bi-Parietal Diameter (BPD), Femur Length (FL), Head Circumference (HC), Abdominal Circumference (AC) were measured in mm while Amniotic Fluid Index (AFI) was measured in cm.
Other biometric parameters for gestational age assessment are biparietal diameter, femur length and head circumference.
