Medical - Medical (general) / Gynecological exam
Italian term or phrase: LA
Description of the fetus in a report from a gynecological exam. Here's the context:

feto singolo vivo con estremo cefalico in basso. Biometria corrispondente all'epoca di gestazione. LA nella norma (tasca max 6,6 cm).

Could this be "liquido amniotico"?
