Abstract

Gestational age is age of unborn baby, defined in weeks as beginning from first day of last menstrual period
prior to conception. Estimation of gestational age and thereby forecasting Expected Date of Delivery is not
only concern of the Individual but it is invaluable in the diagnosis of intrauterine growth retardation of fetus
and obstetric planning. Determination of age of a fetus by using various methods is required for medico legal
purposes in both civil and criminal matters. In present study we assesses Correlation between gestational
age and abdominal circumference in second trimester, The study of Correlation between gestational age
and abdominal circumference in second trimester by Ultrasonography was carried out and collected data
was tabulated according to weeks of menstrual cycle and were taken in centimeters. Standard deviation
of abdominal circumference for each week was calculated. We found that Abdominal Circumference is
statistically highly significant and the regression equations derived for growth parameter for estimating
gestational age in a normally developing fetus, increase with gestational age, showed good correlation with
gestational age.
