Context: Researchers have developed Garbhini-GA2, an India-specific artificial intelligence model, to accurately determine the gestational age of a fetus during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

  • This model, created by the Indian Institute of Technology Madras and Translational Health Science and Technology Institute, is part of the DBT India initiative (GARBH-Ini) program.



  • Garbhini-GA2 is the first late-trimester gestational age estimation model validated using Indian population data, addressing variations in fetal growth compared to Western populations.
  • It significantly reduces estimation errors and enables precise prenatal care, potentially reducing maternal and infant mortality rates.
