Checking for fetal growth

    I am unable to check ACOG guidelines, so could use some help. On ultrasounds that are done to check for fetal growth/size, what diagnosis would you use?

    There is not a descrepency in uterine size...

    What are you guys out there using in this situation?

    Thanks in advance....

    What would be the decision for doing the ultrasound? Was there a suspected condition? Gestational diabetes? Or try V28.89.

    Take a look at V28.4- Screening for fetal growth retardation usling ultrasonics.
    It sound like this fits what your physicians are doing since they are looking for fetal size.
