Ultrasound diagnosis - HELP Melanie

Tonya Posted Fri 16th of July, 2010 18:14:13 PM

I could really use an answer Melanie for this question.

A patients fundal height measures 23, weeks of gestation by LMP is 26w. The ultrasound tech used a dx of measuring small for dates. Pt did measure at 24w 6d according to US. Is this small for dates or is this uterine size date discrepency? Any clarification on uterine size date discrepency would be greatly appreciated.

And to clarify on size small or large for dates, do they have to measure small/large for dates at least 2 consecutive weeks to use this diagnosis?

Thanks,
Rhonda
