Abstract

Objective: To assess variation of pulsatility index of middle cerebral artery (MCA-PI) in intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR).
Study Design: Descriptive study.
Place and Duration of Study: The study was conducted in department of Radiology, Combined Military Hospital Lahore, from March 2006 to September 2006.
Patients and Method: A total 100 patients with IUGR in third trimester were selected. Ultrasound estimation of fetal weight (using fetal biometry) below 10th percentile for that gestational age was labeled as IUGR. MCA-PI value of less than 0.751 was labeled as abnormal.
Result: Abnormal values of PI-MCA were found in 79% of IUGR cases while 21% had normal values.
Conclusion: PI-MCA is a sensitive modality of assessing IUGR.
