This study aims to investigate the reliability of a MATLAB program designed to calculate the subcutaneous fat volume in the fetus. It will be employed in a study investigating macrosomia outcomes in diabetic pregnant mothers. The MR technique used to assess the foetal growth is Fat Sequences with Water Suppression where pregnant women were scanned in late pregnancy (after 30th gestation week) when fetal fat is more visible.
