Merz et al reported an equation for estimating fetal weight from ultrasonographic measurements. The authors are from Universitats-Frauenklinik Mainz.
Patient selection: 24 to 42 weeks of gestation with measurements less than 7 days from delivery
(1) abdominal circumference in cm (AC)
(2) biparietal diameter in cm (BPD)
estimated fetal weight in grams =
= (157.07186 * (AC)) + (15.90391 * ((BPD)^2)) - 3200.40479
