How To Find Boy Or Girl In Ultrasound Scan
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
Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?
With great precision: An early ultrasound is the most precise (+/- 3-5 days until 8 weeks) in the determination of the due date and therefore the fetal age. This declines to +/-5-7 days @8-12 weeks +/-7-10 days @13-23 weeks +/-10-14 days @24-28 weeks +/-14-17 days @29-32 weeks and +/- 17-21 days thereafter. Due to the biological variation of the ovulation date ultrasound <24 weeks is more reliable than last period! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ask: Depending on the quality of the scan and the cooperation of the baby, this information may or may not be available after 16-20 weeks. The parts may be there but the technician must have success finding them to make that call.

Find a taller girl more easily, so my question is, how to get osteoporosis earlier, in order to lose a couple of inches, what to do?
How do you get your baby to cooperate during the sonogram? We need to find out whether it's healthy and whether it's a boy or a girl. Any tips?
I : I wish there was a definitive answer for this. Some women find that if they eat a sugary snack about 15 minutes prior to the ultrasound the baby will be very active, therefore giving the technician greater odds of seeing the sex. . Also consider the times when your baby is most active and try to schedule the ultrasound around that time. Also consider changing your position during the ultrasound, often times when you move the baby will as well. Best of luck, and remember a boy or a girl is a true gift! congrats and happy new year! ...Read more
I want to find out who my baby's father is without a DNA test. Can I use the old fashioned blood type testing?
Too vague: Blood type testing can certainly exclude a designated person if their blood type is incompatible with that of the child. For example, a dad who is ab would not have a kid that was an o. But narrowing down & proving someone is by this means is unlikely.There are some companies that offer dna tests for this purpose & some states will require this method to identify dads for child support disputes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'd like to ask can my DEXA scan report be useful to my doctor who want to see my xray. Is DEXA scan serve as a xray ?
Maybe: Dama: the dexa does take a scan of your bones, but it does not replace a regular x-ray. In fact, often if there is something seen on dexa, a true x-ray will be recommended to further evaluate. On the other hand, the dexa report will give your doctor a good idea of the status of your overall bone health and whether your bones are beginning to thin or not. I recommend that you do the xray too. ...Read more
