The use of 3D ultrasound to investigate fetal bone development
<div>Epidemiological studies suggest impaired fetal skeletal development has lifelong consequences for bone health. To examine the feasibility of using 3-dimensional ultrasound (3DUS) to investigate influences on fetal femur development, we obtained volume datasets of the uppermost fetal thigh at 19 and 34 weeks gestation in 517 women in a population-based survey of maternal nutrition. In addition to the standard measure of femur length, we derived femoral cross-sectional areas and volume fromdoi:10.5324/nje.v19i1.11 fatcat:52b6ozxt5vf5tade5vep6ewxpy
