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

Earlier the better: In the first trimester (< 14 wks) it's accurate within days. The later in pregnancy, the more inaccurate it is to date a pregnancy. Roughly, if an ultrasound differs by a week in the first trimester, dates are changed. 2 weeks for second trimester & 3 wks difference in the third trimester to change the due date compared to an lmp due date. Always keep the earliest us edc, it should never change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See answer: They are usually complementary. Endovaginal us usually give an improved view of the endometrial stripe, ovaries, and uterine parenchyma. Trans-abdominal us shows a more comprehensive “overview” of the entire uterus and it’s relationship to the bladder and pelvis and may identify ovaries that are more widely positioned. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard to be certain: Ultrasound is never 100%, but several findings are suspicious for endometrial hyperplasia or even cancer. For instance, if your lining is excessively thick for your age or if there is a suspicious mass seen within the uterine cavity on the sonogram, hyperplasia or cancer may be present. However, other findings can cause similar images on sonogram. Also, diagnosis can only be made with a biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have recently changed my gynacologist n she uses the intravaginal ultrasound for every checkup...Is that ok coz im not comfortable with it...And how can I b sure it is well disinfected?
Why the ultrasound?: Is there a particular reason that your gyn is doing an ultrasound exam? Is he following a cyst or other abnormality? There is no reason to do routine pelvic ultrasounds on a patient who is asymptomatic. The vaginal ultrasound probe is always disinfected after every patient. If you are unsure, ask the physician or nurse to show you the area where they sterilize the probe. ...Read more

No fetal heartbeat found on the first intravaginal ultrasound at 6 weeks and 1day. Should I be concerned? I have another appt scheduled in 10 days.
Yes.: Your question puzzles me somewhat. The lack of a heartbeat on a 6 week U/S is an ominous sign of a failed pregnancy. If that's the case, you're likely to miscarry & have bleeding and cramping. If the pain and/or bleeding is severe, you need immediate medical care. Regardless, keep that follow up appointment so your doctor can reassess your situation. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: It depends on why you got it/what your symptoms are. The most common areas to be evaluated in a non-pregnant female are 1) the uterus for fibroids, 2) the endometrium for various conditions that usually result in pain or bleeding, or 3) the adnexa where the ovaries are (looking for cysts or cystic cancer). Hope this helps. ...Read more
Probably not: Any type of ultrasound at any point in pregnancy has a range of error much less than 5 weeks. At worst a scan in the late third trimester is the least accurate but still within a range of error of 23 days or less. Trans-vaginal pregnancy dating is usually done before 14 weeks and is within 4 to 14 days depending on how far along the pregnancy is. ...Read more
