Ultrasonographic measurement of fetal femur length and biparietal diameter in an Israeli population.
In this paper, a dynamic approach for measuring Biparietal Diameter using improved Image processing techniques is presented.

Fetal cerebellar diameter in normal gestation is also highly correlated with fetal growth indices, such as biparietal diameter, head circumference and abdominal circumference5.
Therefore, we also report associations of exposure with biparietal diameter (the widest diameter of the head), which we assessed at the first trimester examination; this was strongly correlated with head circumference during the second and third trimesters (coefficient of correlation, 0.92 during the second trimester and 0.80 during the third trimester, p < [10.sup.-3]).
For second- and third-trimester studies, additional information was abstracted on placental location, the presence or absence of fetal anomalies, sex assessment, and gestational dating by multiple variables (biparietal diameter, head circumference, femur length, abdominal circumference, and the average of these four measurements).
In our study the fetus was observed for gestational age estimation using biparietal diameter (BPD) and femur length (FL) in the second trimester and BPD, FL and abdominal circumference (AC) in the third trimester.
The biparietal diameter was measured from outer table of nearest parietal bone to the table of farthest parietal bone with the midline falx perpendicular to the ultrasonic beam.
Sylvie Nguyen The Tich of University Hospital, Angers, France, and her colleagues, also found that this biparietal diameter is significantly larger in term newborns than in preterm newborns when measured at term equivalent age.
The average weight of fetuses was 1.13 [+ or -] 0.19 g, the head-to-tail lenght was 1.99 [+ or -] 0.87 cm, the cephalic lenght was 1.01 [+ or -] 0.37 cm, and the biparietal diameter was 0.63 [+ or -] 0.06 cm.
IUGR was defined by the presence of ultrasonographic signs (biparietal diameter below the 10th centile and abdominal circumference below the 5th percentile) according to the normograms of Campbell and Thoms (15) and by a fall in the centile of fetal size recorded between the first scan after referral and subsequent scans.
(1-12) Estimated gestational age by ultrasound was derived from correlational standards for biparietal diameter, head circumference, femur length, and abdominal circumference.
