Background: Ultrasonography is one of the most important and useful diagnostic tool in the field of modern medicine. gestational age (dating). The measurements of choice for pregnancy dating are gestation dependent as shown below (Table 1). Crown-rump length (6– Gestational age, synonymous with menstrual age, is defined in weeks beginning from the first day of the last menstrual period LMP prior to conception.
Ultrasound examination in the first trimester allows accurate assessment of gestational age, and identifies and allows for appropriate care of women with multiple pregnancies. Calculates gestational age from crown rump length and expected nuchal translucency thickness. Crown-rump length CRL is an ultrasound measurement that is used during pregnancy.
Crown-rump length CRL is the measurement of the length of human embryos and fetuses from the top of the head crown to the bottom of the buttocks rump.

BACKGROUND: Fetal crown-rump length (CRL) measurement by ultrasound in the first trimester is the standard method for pregnancy dating;.
Fetal crown-rump length (CRL) measurement by ultrasound in the first trimester is the standard method for pregnancy dating; however.
Crown-rump length (CRL) is the measurement of the length of human embryos and fetuses starting from the first day of the last menstrual period) and thus the expected date of delivery (EDD). An average gestational period (duration of pregnancy from the first day of the last menstrual period up to delivery) is days.
The parameters used in the calculation include current date, last menstrual period, ultrasound date, crown rump length, biparietal diameter, head circumference.
