Amniotic Fluid Index Chart

Amniotic fluid index (AFI) is a quantitative estimate of amniotic fluid. It can serve as an indicator of fetal well-being. The index is determined by performing ultrasound examination of the uterus.

Generally speaking, an AFI between 8-18 is considered normal.
An AFI<5-6 is considered as oligohydramnios.
An AFI>24-25 is considered as polyhydramnios.
The exact number may vary by gestational age.
