How can the proper level be identified at which to measure the biparietal diameter and head circumference? Moving the transducer slightly inferior to the ventricular atrium identifies the area of the thalami and the ambient cisterns. This is the widest transverse diameter of the skull and the proper level for measurements.

What is micrognathia? A small chin.
What is macroglossia? A large tongue that persistently protrudes outside of the mouth.
Can fetal hair be visualized sonographically? Yes, usually you can visualize fetal hair when doing your cranial measurements but it must not be included in the biparietal diameter.
What is one of the most important landmarks when obtaining a abdominal measurement? The left portal vein.
Should the distal femoral epiphysis be included in the femoral length measurement? No
Is the tibia or fibula larger? Normally the tibia will be larger than the fibula.
What should the normal umbilical cord contain? Two arteries and one vein.
What is the major role of the placenta? To permit the exchange of oxygenated maternal blood with deoxygenated fetal blood.
What major functions does the amniotic fluid serve as during intrauterine life? 1) It allows the fetus to move freely within the amniotic cavity and 2) It maintains inter-uterine pressure and protects the developing fetus from injury.
What are the two types of IUGR? Symmetric and asymmetric IUGR
What is IUGR? Best described as a decreased rate of fetal growth.
