'Treasure Hunting' Using ultrasound for growth surveillance in the 3rd Trimester

Heather Watson, Clare Hughes

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Fetal growth restriction [FGR] is the single largest population attributable risk for
stillbirth and can impact on future childhood development. Appropriate risk assessment will determine the most appropriate growth surveillance pathway to
follow. In ultrasound, the Hadlock 4 formula is recognised as the most effective way to calculate estimated fetal weight. Whilst evidence does not support the
routine use of ultrasound in 3rd trimester, women who are identified as moderate to high risk of FGR should be offered serial ultrasound 2-3 weekly until birth. This
poster defines FGR and the role of ultrasound in the 3rd Trimester.
