Abstract

  Estimation of gestational age is very important in modern obstetrics as any procedure or intervention is mainly dependent on gestational age.

1. To study the efficacy of the measurement of placental thickness by ultrasound in the estimation of gestational age of the fetus.
2. To compare this parameter with the other parameters of fetal biometry by ultrasound for assessment of gestational age.

  In this study Ultrasonographic measurement of placental thickness and its correlation to estimation of gestational age was done on 333 antenatal mothers of various gestational age attending the outpatient department. This study was approved by the Ethical committee board.
