한국인 태아에 있어서 신장 좌고 및 상하지사이의 상관관계와 이들 계측치에서 신장을 추산하는 공식작성에 관한 연구 : A Study on the Equation Formulae for the Estimation of Stature from the Measurements of Sitting Height and Extremities in the Korean Fetus

- The authors have measured the 2, 100 Korean fetuses
ranging from 16 to 36 weeks in age to induce the
equation formulae for the estimation of stature in terms
of the measurements of the sitting height and extremities
and the following conclusions have been drawn.
1) The correlation coefficients of over O. 9 between
the measurements of the sitting height and the extremities
are indicative of highly correlated condition.
2) A difference of approximately 4 mm. is manifested
between actual and estimated statures in both sexes,
where the estimation is based on the single meas
urement of sitting heigh t.
3) A difference of approximately 3 mm. is manifested
between actual and estimated statures in both sexes ,
where the estimation is based on the sitting height
and one of the mensurements of the extremities.
4) The estimated stature from the sitting height and
one of the measurements of the extremities is closer
to actual one than is that from single measurement
of sitting height.
