Abstract

A fetal forehead was evaluated using three-dimensional ultrasonography to generate normative data throughout gestation. A second order polynomial growth function was noted throughout gestation for the forehead length, forehead height, and forehead area. The fetal forehead index remained relatively constant throughout gestation.
