If you do obstetrical ultrasound, you will be assessing amniotic fluid every day.
Do you have some rules you live by?
Do you use visual queues? If so, what are they?... Is just that it "looks normal" or do you know why it looks normal?
How about fluid measurements? Are you doing them right? Do you know where those numbers come from?
I've posed a lot of questions here.....

This is part of our new premium video course and our 10 hour CME course. You can find that course and our basic "e-course" called Demystifying the Second Trimester Scan which will give you a no nonsense overview of "what you really need to know" to perform/interpret OB scans at a high level by clicking here!

If you perform OB ultrasound, the biometric evaluation of the fetus is something you do every day. It's not the most complicated thing in the world, but there are definitely some nuances.
If you are learning or new at OB ultrasound, becoming excellent at biometric measurements and learning how to do it the right way now is critical!
At the same time, I see many experienced sonographers make subtle errors on occasion.
Here is another video excerpt from our new 10 hour CME course.

What makes this measurement so unique and special?
What is the appropriate way to measure it?
What is normal? Is it a spectrum or is there a hard cut off?
