In this work, we present an empirical study of DCGANs, including hyperparameter heuristics and image quality assessment, as a way to address the scarcity of datasets to investigate fetal head ultrasound. We present experiments to show the impact of different image resolutions, epochs, dataset size input, and learning rates for quality image assessment on four metrics: mutual information (MI), Fr\'echet inception distance (FID), peak-signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), and local binary pattern vector (LBPv). The results show that FID and LBPv have stronger relationship with clinical image quality scores.
