Abstract

Sonja Brennan used a novel ultrasound measurement of the renal parenchyma to evaluate fetal kidney growth. Normal ranges of fetal renal parenchymal thickness were developed to aid diagnosis of kidney disease and help predict future kidney function. The effects of abnormal fetal growth and diabetes on the developing kidneys was explored.
