Ultrasound Examination Results 28 Weeks?
At noon, yesterday I was ultrasound. The result is r nEFW2 (s) 1283g (2lb 13oz) r nFL / AC 22.81 (20.00-24.00) FL / BPD 76.72 (71.0-87.0) what does it mean … because the doctor who is ultrasound does not explain it. Please help explain, yes … thank you …
Ultrasound or ultrasonography is a medical examination that utilizes sound waves to get a picture of certain organs and conditions in the human body. In obstetrical (obstetric) examinations, ultrasound is used to determine whether a pregnancy is present or not, monitor fetal development, estimate fetal age and weight, and detect possible fetal abnormalities.
EFW is the estimated fetal weight, which is the estimated fetal weight. Usually produced by the tool after the doctor performs a benchmark such as the length of the femur (FL-femur length), baby's abdominal circumference (AC-abdominal circumference), baby's head circumference (BPD-biparietal diameter). Estimates of normal fetal weight at full-term should be above 2500 grams. Your current fetal weight estimate is 1283 grams (whether or not it depends on the gestational age).
Your FL / AC ratio is 22.81, the normal value is in the brackets after that (20.00-24.00), meaning that for this size your fetus is normal. FL / BPD ratio 76.72 The normal value for your fetus is 71.00-87.00, meaning that for this size your fetus is also normal. These measurements are useful for providing an estimate of fetal age (if unsure of the date of the first day of the last menstrual period), detecting fetal growth disorders (too small or large compared to the estimated fetal age), and estimating anatomic abnormalities in the fetus.
If there are things that are incomplete or that is not yet understood, it never hurts to ask your doctor directly when an ultrasound examination is done. Check your womb regularly both in the midwife or in a gynecologist. Consume foods that are nutritious and provide enough water.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
