Explanation Of The Results Of The Ultrasound Examination Lab?
night, is it normal if the results of ultrasound BPD 2.10 cm and AC 6.15 cm? and fetal weight of 72 grams at 12w6d?
Good evening Evi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The gestational age that appears when ultrasound is performed is basically the gestational age that results from calculations based on head circumference (BPD) because in early gestational age, the size of the head circumference measured by ultrasound has a high enough degree of accuracy to determine gestational age.
To help determine whether the estimated gestational age based on the results of the ultrasound calculation is correct or not, your doctor will crosscheck by manually calculating it according to the first day of your last menstruation.
However, for estimated fetal body weight, the weight is large enough for a fetus aged 12-13 weeks where in general the estimated fetal body weight at gestational age is only around 15-20 grams.
To ensure the condition of your fetus, it is recommended that you consult further with an obstetrician who treats you because your doctor knows better how your condition and your fetus is.
I hope this helps.
