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

Can transvaginal ultrasound detect 4 weeks gestation?

Can transvaginal ultrasound detect 4 weeks gestation?

Perhaps: Kyl: at that early stage we may see a decidual (pregnancy) reaction in the uterus and a small gestational sac. We would not be able to see the actual fetal pole or heartbeat that early. A scan at 7-8 weeks would be best to document a good, viable pregnancy with a heartbeat. ...Read more

OVARIAN CANCER? No period for 5 months now. Normal pelvic ct and transvaginal ultrasound in October 2016. No pain. Bloated sometimes. Not pregnant!!!!

OVARIAN CANCER? No period for 5 months now. Normal pelvic ct and transvaginal ultrasound in October 2016. No pain. Bloated sometimes. Not pregnant!!!!

Need to examine: It is very unlikely that you have ovarian cancer. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. You have obviously consulted a doctor and she/he would be in a better position to advise. If you are even slightly overweight, it would help to lose weight. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Would an ultrasound and a transvaginal ultrasound still miss signs of ovarian cancer?

Would an ultrasound and a transvaginal ultrasound still miss signs of ovarian cancer?

Yes: Almost all test and imaging studies have false positive and false negative results. Early ovarian cancer is particularly difficult to detect as the normal ovary often has cystic changes and varies in size during the reproductive period. Having said that, transvaginal ultrasound is a useful and perhaps the best test for detecting ovarian cancer. ...Read more
