Anomaly Scan Measurements

I've just had my 20 week scan and am looking over my notes. I'm unsure of what each of the measurements stand for and was wondering if anyone could help or possibly provide a link.

I'm interesting in finding out:

BPD, HC, AC, FL, PD, Va, Vp, Cerbellum and Cisterna Magna. Would also love to know what are the normal/average measurements for 20+6. The sonographer said all is well and in place but i'm still doing some h/w just the same.

head circumference, abdominal circumference, can't remember all the others. has she plotted them on a chart? there's usually a graph showing averages at so many weeks etc.

BPD is biparietal diameter which is basically the diameter of the head.
cerebellum and cisterna magna are parts of the brain.
Not sure about PD, Va and Vp.
On my scan printout there was a diagram showing the baby's measurements in relation to the average (a line with a diamond on it) - you might find something like that on yours. hth

Thank you all very much. I've just found some info as well on babycentre. Cheers!
