How can I get a copy of my ultrasound report?

How can I get a copy of my ultrasound report?

Ask for it.: This simplest approach is to ask for a copy at your next appointment. Your medical record is owned by the practice; however, the information contained in that record is yours. You have the right to review your record and request copies. A formal request would need to be in writing and there may be an associated charge for the work involved in preparing copies, but it cannot be denied you. ...Read more

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

How can one predict baby gender from ultrasound report at 12 weeks?

Depends on variables: Although the parts may be present it is difficult to be accurate on gender assessment at 12 weeks. In the hands of a skilled tech with a high resolution probe this can sometimes be suggestive. However, it is more reliable around 18-20 wks. Even then, I have seen folks who decorated a nursery based on us have to repaint when baby delivered. ...Read more

What does it mean " the gallblader is physiologically distended" in an ultrasound report. Had fasting for 12hours before the test?

Probably: Means that the gallbladder is normal, as fasting for 12 hours before the ultrasound would be expected to cause the gallbladder to retain bile and become full or distended. Eating causes the gallbladder to empty its bile fluid. It is expected that one would not eat before the ultrasound so the gallbladder can be seen properly. ...Read more

What should be my due date? 1 ultrasound report says that its 11 january But other says that its 20th january 2015 My LMP is 3rd april 2014 (irregular)

What should be my due date? 1 ultrasound report says that its 11 january But other says that its 20th january 2015 My LMP is 3rd april 2014 (irregular)

Earliest: The earliest ultrasound is the most accurate and I would rely on that since you say your periods are irregular. The margin of error (how many weeks plus or minus) for ultrasounds increases as pregnancy progresses. All 3 day embryos are pretty much the same size but babies at term can be normal and be 6-9 pounds. ...Read more

Ultrasound report said 6 weeks, 122 BPM but abnormal embryo. I conceived naturally why would the report say abnormal embryo and is this accurate?

Abnormal US: At six weeks, it is very difficult to see much to determine if the embryo is normal or not. While they reported a good heart beat, there is not much more that you would see. I wonder if they are referring to bleeding around the placenta. I hope they scheduled a repeat ultrasound in 7-10 days to offer you more information. ...Read more

Talk to your doctor: It seems you are already being followed by md as ultrasound was requested. The pain gave me the thought of epididymitis and if chronic can cause calcification. There are people who have micro calcification in the testis with different implication. I am not sure of the ultrasound report, so talk to your doctor and have it explained. Good luck. ...Read more

Not enough info: Why was the doctor testing for active rubella infection? Do you have symptoms? If the igm was ordered by accident, and you have not been ill, then i'd wonder if it was a false positive, and i'd retest. If you caught rubella in pregnancy, then you'd need close monitoring for fetal effects. ...Read more

What does transverse diameter cerebellum, slightly prominent mean on a prenatal ultrasound report?

What does transverse diameter cerebellum, slightly prominent mean on a prenatal ultrasound report?

Probably nothing: You'll have to ask the OB/GYN if there's any clinical significance to that finding since there is much more to both the report as well as the pregnancy than you have told us. The statement by itself is saying that the technologist doing the ultrasound feels the WIDTH of the cerebellum (part of brain in back that controls balance) is VERY WELL visualized. But that doesn't say much in my opinion. ...Read more

What to do if I'm 70 and as per latest ultrasound report a moderately enlarged prostate with residual urine of 120 ml.?

What to do if I'm 70 and as per latest ultrasound report a moderately enlarged prostate with residual urine of 120 ml.?

Talk with urologist: Depending on the degree of bother, drug therapy can be considered which might include two drugs that work dofferently, especially if the prostate measures greater than 50 cc by ultrasound. One relaxes involuntary muscle tone in the urinary tract and the other can physically shrink the prostate over a 4-6 month period. These meds may reduce (or delay) risk of more problems and improve emptying. ...Read more
