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.

Trust in your doctor to interpret these findings for you. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can an ultrasound have conclusive findings about the embryo at 6 weeks? Is it possible to tell an embryo is abnormal so early?
I had 4abortions. No comp. Asked my dr if I could have Asherman's synd. he says no becuz ultrasound doesn't show anything "abnormal" is he right?
Not entirely: Asherman's is scarring within the endometrial cavity. This cannot be excluded with standard ultrasound because the cavity is not distended. Hysterosalpingography would be the gold standard, sonohysterography a close second. Unless you have recurrent pregnancy loss, I wouln't worry about it or do any further imaging. ...Read more
