Fetal lung immaturity was diagnosed by the analysis of amniotic fluid, while to avoid invasive nature of amniocentesis, ultrasound B-mode imaging gray level histogram width is applied to detect fetal lung immaturity, of which advantage is its non-invasive nature, accordingly, repeated application is able using ultrasound techniques.
