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.

Unfortunately : Unfortunately I am unable to give you any information on survival rates without knowing more information. Based on what is in your post, excess tissue on the back of the neck could be a sign of down's syndrome; the hernia depending on where it is carries different risks. I would like to take this opportunity to use your case as a lesson for yourself/fiance and others. Never leave a doctor's appointment with unanswered questions. You have a right to have all your questions answered and everything explained to you in detail. If the ultrasound tech. Gave you that information you need to call the doctor right away and ask forn an explanation. Make an appointment, call on the phone, write a letter. Do whatever you have to do to get answers. Best of luck. ...Read more

If you have had 1 preterm birth or more than 2 miscarriages in the past, then automatically you will be placed for cervical surveillance at 16 weeks. Hope this helps. ...Read more
