Amniotic fluid index

What is Amniotic fluid index?

AFI is the score given to the amount of amniotic fluid seen on ultrasonography of a pregnant uterus. To determine the AFI, doctors may use a four-quadrant technique,when the deepest, unobstructed, vertical length of each pocket of fluid is measured in each quadrant and then added up to the others,or the so-called "Single Deepest Pocket" technique.
