Do Ultrasound Technicians Check The Fetus Labia
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
Burning raw feeling bottom labia majora mostly left but sometimes right. Had probe ultrasound, culture for bacteria, contrast scan, all normal!
Needs an exam: Lumps, bumps, blisters and other skin abnormalities on the genitals need to be evaluated. An examination will be needed to know the cause and treatment. Burning could be herpes, yeast, vulvar vestibulitis, blocked glands or an allergic reaction to household products. Over the counter Prevaleaf Soothe is a great product for this. A thorough exam will be needed to determine the cause and treatment ...Read more

At 12 weeks the ultrasound technician saw that my fetus has penetrated the empty sac of the vanishing twin. How could this be?
Good question: I am not sure what the ultrasound technician may have meant if he/she really stated the surviving fetus has penetrated the empty sac of the vanishing twin. If he/she is implying that the membranes of the vanishing twin are somehow wrapping around the surviving fetus, then this is a situation that you would want to have clarified by a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist. Discuss a referral. ...Read more
On 4/28 11 wks I went to my first prenatal visit. The ultrasound showed a fetus of 5/6 wks and a sack of 11 wks with no heart beat. On 5/1 I was given medication to help pass the fetus. On my check up 5/19 I had a positive test hcg level 142 and there wa

What is more accurate for fetus age-lmp or ultrasound? Had u/s at what I thought was 13w but u/s said 11w3days. Do I book another at my 20w or theirs
8-13 week US better:
Base your followup us on the current us results. Ob us is most accurate between 8 and 13 weeks, measuring crown rump length of the fetus, and when there is a difference between LMP and this us, the us is usually correct, if performed well.
The fetal anatomy screening us should be between 18 and 22 weeks, so hedge your bets and schedule between 19 and 20 weeks based on the first us. ...Read more
Depends: There are some fetal cardiac arythmias that needs treatment while in utero, but not all of them. It is recommended to discuss this problem with a maternal fetal medicine specialist that will provide all the necessary info. ...Read more
When I had my transvginal ultrasound at 6 weeks the fetus had heartbeat but at 9 weeks the heartbeat was gone. What could be the cause?
Genetic abnormality: You had an early fetal demise. This is fairly common and most often its a chromosomal (gene) abnormality during early development that is responsible. ...Read more
Based on other scans: All dimensions of the baby are measured. The gestational age of your baby is determined. His/her measements should be consistent with the range of normal for other babies the same gestational age. And all of the measurements should be consistent with eachother. Ex. You should not have a leg the measures 28wk and a head that measures like a 22wk baby. ...Read more
What is the error of margin for an ultrasound dating at 11 week 4 day, measuring the fetus crl at 4.8 cm?
Plus or minus, 5 day: The margin of error at that gestational age is typically + or minus 5 days. That crl is definitely normal for that gestational age. ...Read more
Is it possible to see a sack and a very tiny fetus at 4 weeks and 3 days on a regular ultrasound (not transvaginal)?
Possible: If u are not heavy, but u will need followup to make sure it is normal, u need a quant bhcg and a Progesterone level and another us at 6 1/2 weeks at that time should be able to see a small fetus with a htbeat. ...Read more
Ultrasound; Gestational sac at 10 weeks looks 5 times bigger than fetus (which looks 7 weeks) should I be concerned?
Not really: There are several parameters that are measured to follow fetal growth in utero: biparietal diameter, femur length. They don't measure size of fetal sac, so no comparable data available and it's just nonsense to talk about it. ...Read more
Does the fetus have to be a certain size (mm/cm) in order for the nuchal translucency (ips) ultrasound to be performed?
Yes.: This is done between 11-14 weeks estimated gestational age. This corresponds to a crown-rump length of between about 4-8 cm. ...Read more
Ultrasound says my fetus is 6 weeks 2 days but my gestational sac is 7 weeks 2 days. Heartbeat is normal. Is everything ok?
Most likely: The most accurate measurement of the fetus is the crown rump length. The gestational sac is like a fluid filled balloon, not a perfect sphere. So the measurement of the sac can vary quite a bit depending on what part was measured. If there is already a fetal heart beat, that is a great sign. Keep your follow up appointments with your OB doctor. ...Read more
32 week ultrasound shows fetus' bilateral ventricles are 9.5 mm. Doc wants me back after 2 weeks for another. Can this be a bad problem?
I assume it is ventriculer index you are talking about
at 32 weeks midline zone is9-10 mm
I am sure your physician has been monitering the ventrical size in your baby
if it is less or more than the 2 standered deviation of your babies prior ventriculer size it needs to be closely monitered ...Read more
At first ultrasound fetus had heartbeat 145, but could not find a yolk sac. I measured 6w4d. Would the baby have a good heartbeat if no sac?
Doctor said that a 12 week fetus couldn't be 2 weeks off and confused with an 8 or 10 week fetus. Is there not a range of error with ultrasounds?
7 days: Two weeks is outside the margin of error of ultrasound at this gestation. I agree with your doctor. ...Read more
Went to the doctor today and I was told that im 7 weeks and 4 days.... Got an ultrasound done and there only was a sac no fetus. What does that mean?
It depends: This could be a blighted ovum (not viable and will ultimately miscarry) or perhaps you ovulated late (cycles can vary) and you are not as far along as you thought. Measurements of the sac size can help determine this but are not perfect. Most doctors will do a follow up scan in a week or two to see how things progress. ...Read more
Can a fetus that shows at the ultrasound 8 weeks can actually be 14 weeks and the ultrasound to show more?
Don't completely: Understand the question, but a normal 14 week fetus could never be mistaken for an 8 week gestation. ...Read more

Sounds like: If it was an "echogenic intracardiac focus", this is a "soft" or 'minor' marker for down's syndrome, and in patients who are otherwise "low risk" for genetic defects, it is not felt to indicate an increased risk for ds. But most doctors would offer you a consult to a high risk OB specialist for more testing; or blood work from you that is almost 99% accurate to check for ds, tri13 ;18. Eif may res. ...Read more
