Abstract


OBJECTIVES
Our study was to measure how well semiquantitative three-dimensional ultrasonographic measures of amniotic fluid in the third trimester, to investigate the relationship between three-dimensional amniotic fluid volume and amniotic fluid index, two dimensional amniotic fluid volumes.
METHODS
We compared amniotic fluid volume as measured by three-dimensional ultrasonographic techniques with amniotic fluid index including two dimensional amniotic fluid volume in 33 women during in the third trimester.
RESULTS
There was highly significant linear correlations of three-dimensional amniotic fluid volumes with AFI (r=0.6898) and two dimensional amniotic fluid volume (r=0.7926).
CONCLUSION
Three-dimensional ultrasonographic technology has clinical significance as a tool to measure amniotic fluid volume. There are highly significant correlations of three dimensional amniotic volumes with AFI and two dimensional volume.
