Shinozuka et al reported an equation for predicting fetal weight in Japan. The authors are from the University of Tokyo.
Patient selection: Japanese fetus
(1) abdominal circumference in cm (AC)
(2) biparietal diameter in cm (BPD)
(3) femur length in cm (FL)
estimated fetal weight in grams =
= (0.23966 * ((AC)^2)*(FL)) + (1.623 * ((BPD)^3))
