    When to Use
    Why Use

    Patients who are pregnant or may be pregnant.

    According to ACOG, ultrasound measurement in the first trimester (up to and including 13 6/7 weeks of gestation) is the most accurate method to establish or confirm gestational age.

    Accurate estimates of gestational age may positively affect pregnancy outcomes, including lower risk of post-term induction and earlier detection of multiple gestations (Whitworth 2015).
