Fetal Age Estimation from Ultrasonic Measurements of Biparietal Diameter

Anita*, Anand Kumar**, Amrita Gupta***.

Abstract
Aim of the study: This study was conducted to obtain the fetal age and to note any deviation from established B.P.D. Methods: Biparietal Diameter of 200 fetuses was measured by ultrasonographic examination in rediology department and this study was compared with published data by F.P.Hadlock, A.B. Kurtz etal, Doubilet P.M., Peler W.Callen. Result: In present study we found that values of BPD are smaller than those in published reports of biparietal diameter values throughout pregnancy. Conclusion: Present study shows that in India particularly in the North Indian population the knowledge of first day of last menstrual period is not reliable. So there are need for antenatal determination of fetal age in our population. Single measurement of BPD in second trimester or serial BPD measurement in third trimester of pregnancy can prevent premature delivery either by elective caesarean section or by induction of labor. In case of unknown LMP one should take serial measurement of BPD for ideal time of intervention in case of intra uterine growth retardation (I.U.G.R). [Anita NJIRM 2017; 8(6):87-91]

Key words: Biparietal Diameter (B.P.D.), fetal age, antenatal, last menstrual period, ultrasonographic examination.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
