Quick Reference

(SFH) a clinical assessment of fetal growth by measurement of the distance between the maternal pubic symphysis and uterine fundus. This test has a low sensitivity and high false-positive rate with significant inter- and intraobserver variation, and alone is unsuitable for diagnosis. If intrauterine growth restriction is suspected, it is necessary to supplement this measurement with ultrasound biometric tests.
