Fetal growth restriction (FGR), generally defined as less than the 10th percentile by gestational age, is associated with adverse perinatal outcome. Improved screening tests for FGR need to be able to not only identify growth restricted fetuses, but also differentiate between those that are healthy and those that are pathologically small.
