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))
