Abstract|ملخص البحث

This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of ultrasonography in estimating fetal weight among Sudanese as comparing the results with the International Standards. Abdominal Ultrasonography was performed with A real time system MEDISON Ultrasonic machine by using 3.5MHz convex transducer, using Hadlock formal. A total of 533 pregnant women over a 36 month were randomly selected from a group of antenatal patients ranged gestational age from (37-42 weeks). and the data analyzed by Statical package for social science (SPSS)., the study demonstrated that the Hadlock formula is valid in estimating fetal weight locally and it was found that the mean Birth Weight (BW) 3.139 kg, (87.4 %) with 472 g (± 15%) standard deviation, while the actual birth Ranges between 2000 to 4400g. The mean actual birth weight in Sudanese population ranges from 2.000 to 4.400 Kg, with mean of 3.139 Kg (87.4 %) and standard deviation of 472g (± 15%). It was found that there was significant correlation between birth weight (BW) and maternal weight, height and body mass index (BMI) and gestational age, while there was insignificant and week correlation between maternal age, and the mode of delivery.. It is concluded that predicting fetal weight using the formula witch derived by Hadlock et al is accurate and valid and will be useful in our environment.
