Abstract

The purpose of this study was to describe fetal size on sonography in a rural Indian population and compare it with those in European and urban Indian populations. Methods. Participants were from the Pune Maternal Nutrition Study of India. Fetal growth curves were constructed from serial ultrasound scans at approximately 18, 30, and 36 weeks' gestation in 653 singleton pregnancies. Measurements included femur length (FL), abdominal circumference (AC), biparietal diameter (BPD), and occipitofrontal diameter, from which head circumference (HC) was estimated. Measurements were compared with data from a large population-based study in France and a study of urban mothers in Vellore, south India.
