Abstract

Introduction: The basis for an obstetrician's capacity to successfully organise an intervention, administer prenatal care, and conduct prenatal testing. exact awareness of the gestational age. This study conducted to find out correlation of foetal kidney length with foetal biometric parameters like BPD, AC, HC and FL in the third trimester of pregnancy

Methodology: A cross-sectional observational research was carried out on third-trimester pregnant patients who were seen in the obstetrics and gynaecology outpatient department at a tertiary care hospital in India. The study included all women who were singleton pregnant in the third trimester (28 to 40 weeks), had date scans that were documented, were certain of their last menstrual cycle, had a normal prenatal period, and had no risk factors connected with them.

Results: A reasonably excellent positive correlation between MKL and GA. With a decent fit and a R squared (R2) value of 0.599. There is a reasonably strong positive correlation (r) between MKL and GA by HC. With a decent fit and a R squared (R2) value of 0.545, this regression model explains 54.5 percent of changes in GA by HC with MKL. According to the Pearson Association Coefficient (r), there is a relatively strong positive correlation (r) between MKL and GA via AC. A high positive correlation (very good) between MKL and GA via FL. With a decent fit and a R squared (R2) value of 0.668, this regression model explains 66.8% of changes in GA by FL with MKL.

Conclusion: That there is a high correlation between the mean kidney length of the foetus and established biometric markers of gestational age, including femur length, head size, belly circumference, and biparietal diameter.
