Abstract

Objective: To correlate the mean placental thickness with the gestational age estimated by fetal growth parameters in normal singleton pregnancy.

Study Design: Cross-sectional study.

Place and Duration of Study: Combined Military Hospital, Quetta Pakistan, from Feb to Aug 2020.

Methodology: All patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria at the Department of Radiology, Combined Military Hospital Quetta were included. After taking informed written consent and history, transabdominal-ultrasonography using a low frequency 3-5 MHz curved array transducer was done to assess the outcome.

Result: A total of 100 women with a singleton pregnancy were included. The mean age of women was 28.100 ± 3.349 years. The mean placental thickness (PT) was 29.785 ± 5.700 mm. A significant positive correlation of placental thickness was noted with gestational age with a Pearson Correlation of 0.985 and p-value of 0.001.

Conclusion: Placental thickness has a linear relationship with gestational age. Placental thickness in millimeters can be an essential parameter for estimating gestational age.
