Modified Biophysical Profile

Specialty:

Obstetrics & Gynecology
Pedatrics

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

The modified biophysical profile makes use of two parameters of the biophysical profile - the nonstress test and an assessment of amniotic fluid volume. If either is abnormal, a more complete fetal evaluation is then performed immediately. The advantage is that the test can be done more quickly and is simpler than the complete biophysical profile, making frequent monitoring easier.
