Yes: The ultrasound can look at the fetus size , condition, and to determine the gestational date and help to estimate the deliver date. The conception date is usually not accurate.

Could be: Ultrasound for dating in the first trimester will not be terribly useful if you conceive with iui, and if you are certain of teh IUI dates.
