In this review, we evaluate the published methodologies to describe a noninvasive technique for the quantitative assessment of umbilical venous blood flow in the human fetus. We identify a number of variations in the reported methodologies and address some of the common errors associated with Doppler assessment of umbilical venous flow volume. The potential role of umbilical venous flow volumetry in the management of intrauterine growth restriction is briefly evaluated including its utility and reliability in everyday clinical practice.
