WHAT IS PELVIMETRY (PELVIC EXAMINATION, DIGITAL) TEST?

WHAT IS PELVIMETRY (PELVIC EXAMINATION, DIGITAL) TEST?

Digital pelvimetry may be performed by the physician or nursemidwife during pregnancy or nearing delivery to estimate the adequacy of the woman’s pelvic measurements for vaginal delivery. Any abnormality noted with this method is confirmed by other methods, and pelvicephalography is used to fully assess the prospects of normal delivery. The utility of this procedure has been questioned in the literature, as retrospective reviews indicate that a trial of labour is permitted, regardless of the pelvimetry findings.
