Synopsis: 
The fronto-transverse sonographic technique was established as a feasible technique for the measurement of fetal interorbital distance (IOD). There was good correlation between IOD and other fetal biometric parameters. The regression equation of GA = 6.24 + 4.89 1OD was used to predict the GA.

ABSTRACT

Objective:  The objective of this study was to develop a sonographic technique for the measurement of fetal interorbital distance (IOD) for gestational age (GA) determination and to establish a normogram of IOD for the local population.

Sonographic Biometry of Normal Kidney Dimensions among School-age Children in Nsukka, Southeast Nigeria

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.010
Pages: 
46–53
Synopsis: 
Some kidney diseases are usually associated with changes in kidney size. Sonographic determination of pathologic changes in the size of the kidneys necessitates knowing the normal ranges of kidney lengths especially with respect to height in school-age children.

ABSTRACT

Background: Some kidney diseases are usually associated with changes in kidney size.

Objective: To determine sonographically the normal limits and percentile curves of the kidney dimensions according to age, gender and somatometric parameters among school-age children.
