Current ultrasound assessment of placental calcification relies on Grannum grading. The ultrasonographic appearance of grade III placental maturation, if it occurs before 36 weeks, may signify placental dysfunction and is found to be associated with development of pre-eclampsia and low birth weight, meconium stained liquor, admissions to NICU and apgar less than 7 at 5 min of birth.
