Sonographic fetal biometry charts for a Pakistani cohort
AbstractThis study aimed to develop growth centiles at different gestational weeks for fetal biparietal diameter, abdominal circumference, femur length and head circumference in a Pakistani cohort. Data were collected at a tertiary referral hospital from pregnant women at gestational ages 13-40 weeks referred for obstetric ultrasound as a part of routine antenatal care. A total of 1599 fetal sonographic biometric measurements were collected after screening for the inclusion criteria. For each measurement, separate regression models were derived to estimate the mean, standard deviation and reference percentiles at each week of gestational age for this cohort. The best fitting model for each variable was selected. These charts will help radiologists and clinicians in predicting dates of delivery, assessing fetal growth and identifying intrauterine fetal insufficiency in the Pakistani population

Teaching biostatistics and epidemiology in a postgraduate medical institution: are we going in the right direction? Butt, A.K.; Khan, A.A. (2008)We examined the attitude and knowledge of 40 supervisors and trainees as well as the impact of workshops on statistical thinking and analytical processes in a medical facility in Pakistan: 45% thought that statistics and epidemiology should be left to professional statisticians; 86% of the trainees and 58% of the supervisors, however, thought that statistics should be taught as a full-time subject. The majority of trainees [86%] were dissatisfied with the workshops compared to 33% of supervisors. Our findings indicate an urgent need to revise our ...
