Answer

Answer

Ultrasonography is used to assess the status of the fetus as well as to evaluate for growth restriction (typically asymmetrical—use abdominal circumference). [60] Aside from transabdominal ultrasonography, umbilical artery Doppler ultrasonography should be performed to assess blood flow. The value of Doppler ultrasonography in other fetal vessels has not been demonstrated.
