Summary: Fetal echo images from pre-defined gestational ages were retrospectively analyzed. Six experts
attended group training and then independently analyzed 73 fetal studies in a fully crossed design, and each
observer repeated measures for 12 fetuses. Considerable variability in fetal echo quantification was found that
may affect the design of multicenter FE Z-score studies, and not all measurements may be feasible for standard
