How do you know if your baby will have a head full of hair at birth andcan you tell by ultrasound pucs?
Hair ==>Cute images: Let me start with this: looking for hair is not a reason to do or prolong an ultrasound. However, as someone who has done countless ultrasound studies, I have seen fetuses with hair on their heads floating in the fluid. We can sometimes estimate whether there is a full head or only ring-like "monk hair" toward the end of pregnancy. The fetal pictures are cute, but the newborn ones are even cuter! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
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

4 months after giving birth i started lossing my hair. It stopped @ 7 months. My child has just turned 1 & it's happening again! is this normal?
Telogen Effluvium: Sudden your loss is a prominent sign of the end of a pregnancy. During pregnancy the hair grows luxuriously, and then at the end of pregnancy the hormones change suddenly and the support for hair growth is removed and the hair is lost. Sometimes extensive amounts of hair can be lost. This has to do with the growth phases of hair, but if it does not relate to a pregnancy, you should see a dermatolo. ...Read more

What does it mean IHF-0,8cm on head ultrasound in 5 months old baby and what are the consequences ?
Fluid: Interhemispheric fissure (IHF) is measured when US is done for large head size most of the time. It allows one to determine whether enlarging head size is due to fluid outside the ventricles vs inside. If the US did not show fluid inside enlarged ventricles and did show an upper limit of normal IHF, the cause of enlarging head is likely benign. 6-8 mm is the normal range http://radiopaedia.org/articles/benign-enlargement-of-the-subarachnoid-space-in-infancy ...Read more

Truth about results.: Technicians are trained to have some understanding of what they are testing and basic interpretation.
