Biparietal diameter (BPD) is one of many measurements made during ultrasound procedures during pregnancy. It is a measure of the diameter of your developing skull from one parietal bone to another. DBP is used to estimate fetal weight and gestational age.
The biparietal diameter (BPD) is one of the basic biometric parameters used to evaluate the size of the fetus. BPD along with head circumference (HC), waist circumference (AC) and thigh length (FL) are calculated to provide an estimate of fetal weight.

Your doctor will verify that the BPD test, as well as the other tests, are within the range considered normal. The biparietal diameter measurement tends to drop from about 2.4 centimeters after 13 weeks to about 9.5 centimeters if a fetus is still alive.
The mean BPD showed an increase of 2.38 cm after 1320 weeks, 2.18 cm between 20 and 27 weeks and only 1.72 cm after 27-34 weeks. The mean BPS growth rate was 0.31 cm / week from the 13th to the 28th week of pregnancy and then decreased to 0.23 cm / week from the 28th to the 36th week of pregnancy.
The biparietal diameter (BPD) is one of the basic biometric parameters for evaluating the size of the fetus. BPD along with head circumference (HC), waist circumference (AC) and thigh length (FL) are calculated to provide an estimate of fetal weight.
It will be pregnancy at the time of the ultrasound. Pregnancy in BPD is calculated using the formula: days = 2 * BPD + 44.2. It’s an ultrasound pregnancy.
The mean biparietal diameter was 29.4 mm after 14 weeks, 49.4 mm after 20 weeks, 78.4 mm after 30 weeks, 91.5 mm after 37 weeks and 95.6 mm after 40 weeks.
Head circumference (HC) is one of the basic biometric parameters for evaluating fetal size. HC along with biparietal diameter (BPD), waist circumference (AC) and thigh length (FL) are calculated to provide an estimate of fetal weight.
When using ultrasound to try to identify babies over 8 pounds, it does so less than 50% of the time. This means that if you had 10 fat children, five or more would actually weigh less than you expected.
The earlier the ultrasound is done, the more accurately the baby’s date of birth can be estimated. Ultrasound, performed during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, is usually accurate within 3-5 days. The most accurate time is between the eighth and eleventh week of pregnancy.
Biparietal diameter (DBP) measures height. Head Circumference (HC) - Measure around the head. Abdominal Circumference (AC) - Measure around the abdomen. Thigh Length (FL) - measures the length of the femur. A fetal weight (EFW) estimate can be calculated by combining the above measurements.
If the sagittal view of the genital area in the midline shows a caudal notch, the fetus is female, and if there is a cranial notch, the fetus is male. During the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, the ultrasound scans the genital anatomy of the fetus to identify the sex.
The report may include: BPD (biparietal diameter), the diameter of the baby’s head. HC (head circumference), the length that goes around the baby’s head. AC (waist circumference), the length of the baby’s stomach. FL (thigh length), the length of one leg in the child’s leg.
A shorter-than-expected femur length has been used as a flexible marker for some genetic disorders such as trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), trisomy 13 (Patau syndrome) and trisomy 18 (Edward syndrome).
Thigh length correlates well with height and it is known that Down syndrome patients tend to be shorter than average, so this association was not unexpected.
The ratio of head circumference to waist circumference (HC / AC) is also helpful. Between the 20th and 36th week of pregnancy, the HC / AC ratio usually drops almost linearly from 1.2 to 1.0.
