Fetuses of diabetic mothers were found to have highly significantly increased scalp thickness, which was detected by means of fetography. Scalp thickness was correlated with birth weight and with skinfold thickness measured postnatally. The measurement of scalp thickness may be useful in the detection of gestational diabetes in patients undergoing fetography for other indications and may contribute to the management of diabetes in pregnancy.
