The authors discovered a computational error that led to errors in Fig 1, Table 12 and Table 13. The authors have provided corrected versions here.

Fig 1. Percentiles for biparietal (outer–inner) diameter, head circumference, abdominal circumference, femur length, humerus length, estimated fetal weight, femur length/head circumference ratio, and femur length/biparietal diameter ratio during gestational weeks 14–40.

The percentiles (percent) 1st, 5th, 10th, 50th, 90th, 95th, and 99th (smoothed lines) are based on quantile regression and are shown with the observed values (grey dots).
