Margin Of Error At 9 Weeks Ultrasound
See below: About 7 to 8 days.Get a more detailed answer ›
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

What is the error of margin for an ultrasound dating at 11 week 4 day, measuring the fetus crl at 4.8 cm?
Plus or minus, 5 day: The margin of error at that gestational age is typically + or minus 5 days. That crl is definitely normal for that gestational age. ...Read more
Accuracy of early ultra sound at 6 weeks. What is the acutal error margin. I did 2 us and both detect 6 weeks +- 3 days margin aadvised by dr?

Yes if: 1) the pregnancy's abnormal and hence not the correct size, 2) the sonographer mismeasured or miscalculated. Otherwise, not really. ...Read more
Would the gestational age of 12wks+4days @62mm be off by 1 week since ultrasounds have a margin of error of 1 week in the first trimester?
Estimates: Determination of gestational age is based on estimates determined by the last menstrual period and ultrasound. There is a margin of error with ultrasound, but that does not mean that the gestational age is necessarily different by a week. It means that the ultrasound estimate is 12w4d with a very high likelihood that the actual age is between 11+ to 13+ weeks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Last week u/s showed gestational sac of 4 CMS and this week 3.4 CMS. I am 9 week 1 day. gs decreased in size?
CRL 2.4 cm
error in measurem?
We had our first ultrasound today at 9 weeks 2 days. The baby is measuring (crown to rump) an accurate 9w2d, but the gestational sac is 8 ?
Many results of US: There r many measurements that r taken during the trimester ultrasounds (US) to help gauge how the fetus is progressing. None of the measurements are 100% accurate. Doctors use the battery to get an idea of how well the fetus is growing. No 1 measurement is supreme; u have to take them all in context. If ur OB is not worried abt the US, u shd not worry. Congrats, & thanks for asking HealthTap! ...Read more

Go with early US: As gestational age increases the error range increases. The most accurate estimates come from 1st trimester us. ...Read more
Can one tell the baby's gender by looking at the ultrasound report film obtained at 18 weeks 6days of pregnancy from level 2 scan.
The crl & mean sac diameter measured during 7th wk of pregnancy gives fetal age:age from conception/implantation or the gestational age:age from lmp?
Lmp: All pregnancy dating is based on lmp. So even when lmp is unknown the age given by crl assumes when lmp "should have been. Ie about two weeks prior to implantation. So a pregnancy is 40 weeks from lmp and 38 weeks from implantation. All studies, all research, all dating, dating by ultrasound goes by the 40 week designation or from time of lmp. ...Read more
9 w pregnant. Baby measuring 9 weeks but gestational sac measuring 2 weeks behind. Good heartbeat 170s. Is this a problem?

Ultrasound dating accuracy? An ultrasound at 13 weeks and 3 days would have how many days error tops?
Depends: Assuming the tech measured accurately, probably not more than 3 days. ...Read more
Both is best: The most accurate dating is where the 1st trimester ultrasound is within a week of the lmp dating; that confirms the lmp dating. If the 9 week ultrasound gives dates greater than 1 week from what's predicted by the lmp then the lmp is not accurate and the ultrasound dating should be used. ...Read more
What is the margin for error of an ultrasound at 15 weeks? Preg confirmed at about 11 wks, wouldn't US have been done then?
Fetal Ultrasound: An Ultrasound may be done prior to 18-21 weeks gestation if a patient is unsure of her dates or there is a question of whether the pregnancy is within the uterus and not ectopic, i.e. tubal pregnancy or.if the patient is having vaginal bleeding, ultrasound may be performed to confirm whether the fetus is still living. Otherwise, the first ultrasound is usually done at 18-21 weeks. ...Read more
