Fetal Heart On Ultrasound
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
Evaluation 4 defects: Detailed evaluation of the fetal heart. Experienced centers can detect >90% of all fetal cardiac anonalies with fetal echocardiogram. It is a targeted examination that lasts ~1 hour; it is an expensive test. A comprehensive sonogram by a maternal-fetal medicine doctor should be your first step before being referred to the pediatric cardiologists to perform the fetal echo.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends.: Depending on maternal bmi, gestational age, number of fetuses, fibroids, fetal position, machine used, duration of the examination, examiner experience and amniotic fluid volume - prenatal sonography can pick up 20-70% of all fetal heart defects. Fetal echocardiography should detect >90% of such defects, but there are not enough pediatric cardiologists interested in fetal echo around to try that.See 1 more doctor answer

6 weeks 3 days hCG 38, 519 and fetal heart rate 124. Ultrasound said 6w 1d just want to make sure everything sounds good 4 miscarriages past 1 live?
Once u see a ht beat: Hcg does not matter I rec getting a Progesterone level cause if it is low u may need prog gel supplementation and repeat us in 2 weeks to confirm the ht beat is still there andit is n, if that is the case then u hould be good.
Most detailed exam: Maternal-fetal medicine or OB doctors. Sonographers spend long time looking at the heart to ensure that there are 4 chambers, an intact septum between the chambers, normal anatomy of the big vessels of the heart, a regular and normal heart rate, etc. They will also look for abnormalities that can be associated with chromosomal or other problems. Details they see change with fetal age and position.See 1 more doctor answer
Can an ultrasound miss a fetal heart beat when it's Measuring 7wks 1 day. I'm returning in 4 days, chances of seeing a heart beat?
Vaginal? Abdominal?: In almost all cases you should get a heart-beat with vaginal ultrasound early in the 6th week. Abdominal ultrasound won't get a heartbeat until at least 8 weeks in thin women, and can be much later. Good wishes.
I had my ultrasound today and my ob said the fetus is too small to measure. Now I'm worried that the fetus has no heart beat. I'm estimated 5/6 weeks?
5 to 7 days: Ultra sounds in the first trimester is pretty accurate.
Www. Thefetus. Net.: Try the above website for many fetal anomalies, including cardiac lesions.
I went in for a second ultrasound at 8 weeks and was told the fetus was measuring 6 weeks with a low heart rate of 86. What chance of miscarriage?
A precise number. .: .... or chance of miscarriage can not be estimated from these reports, but you are right to be concerned about a low heart rate and small fetal size. Both of these ultrasound associated findings can be interpreted as risks for impending miscarriage. I understand waiting and hoping is difficult...I do hope this is just a temporary blip and all will be well. Stay in close touch with your provider.
My baby has got a fetal heart rate of 79 bpm! I am 12 weeks along! The nurse practitioner did not schedule a follow up ultrasound! What do I do?
Fetal heart rate: Fetal heart rate is very variable. Call your obgyn and schedule an appointment for 3 months follow-up.
Ultrasound showed a gestational sac of 9 wks. Fetal pole not clearly visualized corresponding to 8wks 3 days, unable to detect fetal heart motion.?
My gestational age is 6weak and fetal age is 4 weak but no foetal pole or heart beat seen in ultrasound. Only smal gestational sac is seen. Pls guide.
Early pregnancy.: During the early stages of pregnancy, the fetal age calculated by your lmp and the fetal age by the ultrasound can differ. This is frequent and can be a normal occurrence. Depending on the size in millimeters of the gestational sac, one might not see a fetal pole in a very early pregnancy. Seek the advice of your OB and they will follow your hormone levels and re-ultrasound you if necessary.
Hello. I recently miscarried and in the ultrasound to detect a fetal heart tone it showed up that I have an anterior, subserosal leiomyoma that measures 29 x 24 x 36mm. I've been trying to do some reading about fibroids but am still at a loss. Is this som
NO: Fibroids are very common. It is the growth from uterine wall. Common problems are heavy bleeding, abdominal cramping, hard to concieve only if they are very big. They can be resected but if small usually left alone
Further to a t/v ultrasound, fetal pole measuring 6w6d, no heart beat. Dr said expect a miscarriage. 6 days since u/s, no bleeding. What next?
3 options: I am sorry you have to go through this difficult experience. It may be several days to weeks before you pass the pregnancy spontaneously. You can wait a while longer, or take medications to make your uterus contract to induce the miscarriage or have a surgical procedure (d&c)to remove the pregnancy. Your doctor should discuss all of these options with you.
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
