AI model predicts fetal birth weight before delivery

Accurate prediction of fetal weight at birth is essential for effective perinatal care, particularly in the context of antenatal management, which involves determining the timing and mode of delivery. The current standard of care involves performing a prenatal ultrasound 24 hours prior to delivery. However, this task presents challenges as it requires acquiring high-quality images, which becomes difficult during advanced pregnancy due to the lack of amniotic fluid.

This paper presents a novel method that automatically predicts fetal birth weight by using fetal ultrasound video scans and clinical data. The proposed method is based on a Transformer-based approach that combines a Residual Transformer Module with a Dynamic Affine Feature Map Transform. This method leverages tabular clinical data to evaluate 2D + t spatio-temporal features in fetal ultrasound video scans.
