Miscarriage: What you have is an abnormal pregnancy - a miscarriage. Bleeding will begin, but it may take a few weeks more. You can't do anything yourself to make a miscarriage happen, and you can't do anything to stop one. About 1 in every 5 pregnancies miscarried - usual when there is something wrong with baby. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Mri showed atfl tear. Have pain on upper lateral malleolous.  Possible to miss a tendon or tibiofibular lig. Tear?  App.At ankle os next week. Tests?

Peroneal tendons?: When you sprain the ankle, it is very common to get a longitudinal tear of the peroneus longus or peroneus brevis tendon, especially when there is an injury to the anterior talofibular ligament. Have your podiatrist revisit the MRI for a torn peroneal tendon. ...Read more

From 6-8.5 weeks I've had transvaginal ultrasounds increasing from 132-180. At 9 weeks I had an abdominal scan that showed 158. Cause for concern??

From 6-8.5 weeks I've had transvaginal ultrasounds increasing from 132-180. At  9 weeks I had an abdominal scan that showed 158. Cause for concern??

Heartbeat?: I'm assuming you are talking about the baby's heartbeat? If so, there is no cause for concern. The baby's heartbeat can be quite variable in early pregnancy and this isn't a cause to worry. Best wishes! ...Read more

Does a ultrasound of your knee show cartilage and meniscus tear?

Does a ultrasound of your knee show cartilage and meniscus tear?

Not the best test: Ultrasound is not the best test to evaluate the meniscus and cartilage in the knee. Technically, with the right transducer and a trained operator, ultrasound may be able to see these structures pretty well, but it is likely to miss anything but major abnormalities. Mri is the best test to evaluate the cartilage and menisci. ...Read more

Ultrasound comfirms bloodflow in solid lump near elbow in fatty tissue.what does this mean?

Blood flow: Simply the presence of blood flow in a mass doesn't mean much other than it is not a fluid filled structure/cyst, which wouldn't have internal flow. It confirms that it is solid, but little else. ...Read more

37 week pregnant.Cervical length is normal. Found loose cord around neck at time of scan. Placenta is anterior in uterus. Maturity grade 1. Suggest?

Normal findings: All of the findings you list are normal. I would continue expectant management and plan on a normal vaginal delivery. A cord around the neck is a common finding and usually doesn't create a problem during labor. (I'm assuming the baby's head is down) Best wishes! ...Read more

Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?

Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?

Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more

3 previous c sections pregnant again scan at 6 week showed lower myometrium layer to be 19mm is this to thin?

3 previous c sections pregnant again scan at 6 week showed lower myometrium layer to be 19mm  is this to thin?

No, That is not: A typical measurement to take and I am unsure of any data related to outcomes in measuring this, . That being sain it's almost 2 cm which is almost an inch thick. You are likely not going to see thinning in this area until later, as the uterus stretches. I am not familiar with monitoring thickness of this ares, if it gets thin, which it will, what is done differently? Nothing. Do not worry. ...Read more

Are 4d ultrasounds an accurate indicator of what baby will look like once he/she is born?

Are 4d ultrasounds an accurate indicator of what baby will look like once he/she is born?

Hard to say: The walls of the womb provide a significant amount of pressure on baby, which has the effect of shrink wrap on the features.They can also have a hand, foot or head turned in an odd position, all of which will change when the baby is out and the distortion pressure is gone. ...Read more

What are the risks on baby of 4D ultrasound every week? (done by skilled technician in gerontology center, the duration of scan is 3-5 minutes)

What are the risks on baby of 4D ultrasound every week? (done by skilled technician in gerontology center, the duration of scan is 3-5 minutes)

None: As a radiologist, I know of no health concerns for you or the fetus from ultrasound. With that being said, unless there is an abnormality, there is no reason to do scans that often. There may be unknown risks that we won't learn about until the future. If you are doing the scans because it is for fun, I don't recommend you continue to do this. ...Read more
