Fetal Kidney Length Measurement to Determine Gestational Age in Local Population
Abstract: Gray scale ultrasound is used to assess the length of the fetal kidneys in healthy fetuses. The objective is to ascertain how the length of the fetal kidney varies as gestational age increases and to investigate whether or not this index may be utilised to estimate gestational age.100 patients who complied with the inclusion and exclusion criteria were included in the research. Result: The length of the fetal kidneys is linearly correlated with gestational age. Conclusion: This led us to the conclusion that measuring the length of the fetal kidneys is a reliable way to estimate gestational age.
