A 35-year-old male asked:

can you detect trophoblastic disease at 4 weeks since the first day of last period on transvaginal ultrasound?

Not Likely: At 4 weeks menstrual age there usually are no clear signs at all of an early pregnancy. By 5-6 wks a small gestational sac should be visible but would be difficult to distinguish from trophoblastic disease. By 7-8 weeks we expect to see fetal heart activity and may visualize early trophoblastic disease.
