History and Objectives: Due to the importance of determination of the developmental stages of embryo pregnancy age differences on the basis of determination of embryonic age in various races and different countries, the present investigation was carried out on the distal femoral epiphysis size among individuals referred to Shaheed Beheshti University Clinic Center in 1995-1997.

Materials and Methods: A descriptive study on 1300 females with LMP characteristics at their 28-40 week of pregnancy was carried. Patient’s consent was obtained before the study was initiated. For any given week, 100 patients were selected and 13 weeks interval was chosen. Patients were devoid of other underlying illnesses. In DFE sonography, on its largest diameter, 1.5 magnification and 5-7.5 MHZ transduction, was determined.

Results: From 28th to 40th week of pregnancy, 1300 patients were examined. DFE was not detected at the 28th week of pregnancy. DFE was 0.08±0.37 at the 29th week of pregnancy. A table of DFE and age of pregnancy is presented.

Conclusion: Pregnancy age on the basis of DFE was determined. It is suggested that figures obtained in this study should be evaluated for the prediction of embryonic age. The present procedure can be used in clinical settings with sufficient validity.
