Assessment of gestational age by a reliable method is very important in clinical obstetrics, because, with the advent of better neonatal facilities, of children who are found to be normal at birth, it is possible to create a table and curves of fetal growth. A prospective cross sectional study was carried out on 100 antenatal patients (18-32 years age) between 14-36 weeks of pregnancy attending the OPD for routine ultrasonographic (USG) examination. USG measurements of BPD (biparietal diameter), FL (femur length), AC (abdominal circumference) were done and compared with available data.  From regression analysis, there was a strong correlation with gestational age. These parameters are useful for assessment of gestational age in all patients and particularly in those patients who are not sure about their last menstrual period.
