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.

If you continue to have spotting, then periodic (annual or 2x/yr) sono's may be helpful. If it bothers u (spotting) then u could look into tx's (an ablation, or other procedure). ...Read more

I got an ultrasound today and they told me my ovary is overlapping my uterus. What does this mean?

Nonmedical terms: "An ovary overlapping the uterus" is a descriptive nonmedical terminology of very unclear and uncertain meaning; if you have no pain and your ultrasound exam was otherwise normal, there is no cause for alarm.. Your right and left ovaries are very mobile internal organs which may be found in different locations around your uterus within your pelvis at different times. ...Read more

Scan showed a large mass high in uterus.  Went for two ultrasounds 2 months apart and it's not visible.  How can this happen?  Can a mass disappear?

Ultrasound: An actual mass would not disappear. Either the first radiologist interpreted something as a mass that was not really a uterine mass. Or the second radiologist did not see the mass. Maybe the two radiologists can look at their readings together and give you an explanation. ...Read more

I had an ultrasound at about 5 weeks. They saw a very small sac but said there was a lot of free fluid in my uterus maybe septate. What does it mean?

Waterbag: Early in pregnancy the walls of the waterbag are not as closely attached to the wall of the womb as they are lateron. On ultrasound the shadow of part of the waterbed is seen with fluid between the waterbed and the wall of the womb, creating an image of septation. This issue vanishes as pregnancy progresses. ...Read more
