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

I just had an ultrasound done at 8 weeks 4 days and baby’s heart rate was 184. Is that too high of a heart rate? What does it mean?

Depends: The results of a prenatal ultrasound depend on the sensitivity of the equipment used, the technician and the person interpreting the study. Some studies are fine for locating the fetal position, placental location and estimating fetal size, but little more. Most newer machines are capable of picking up most defects but a few will not be evident. Newborn exam and postnatal study may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was told by a echo ultrasound of my baby that she has a hole in her heart and it will disappear afterwards should I be worry?
Trust provider: Fetal blood circulation requires a connection between the two sides of the heart. Normally, this closes during birth, but it's common to remain connected infancy, then close themselves during early childhood posing no threat. If your provider suggested it would close itself, then it's likely common & not dangerous. Keep follow up appointments & recommendations. You shouldn't worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Should I worry if my ultrasound showed calcium deposit on my unborn baby's heart and I'm 38 years old?
Follow, but...: This needs to be followed, but I wouldn't worry. These deposits are actually found quite often as incidental findings on ultrasounds between 18-24 weeks. The vast majority of them clear on their own by birth. As pediatricians, we often get these reports of these findings on prenatal us, but the baby is just fine. At age in upper 30's though, be followed by high risk OB or maternal-fetal medicine! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When baby heart been is seen in ultrasound? My wife gestational age is 4 weeks. Gestational sac is seen but not no foetel node is seen. Pls guide.
I have just been for my first ultrasound at 6 weeks. They couldn't find the baby's heartbeat. Is my baby dead or just too small to feel the heart beat?
I went in for a 6 week ultra sound expecting to see my baby s heartbeat until this ultrasound we had only seen one sac that sac now showed a beautiful beating heart t 105 I was measuring 6 weeks 4 days however the tech also found another sac considerably
Early pregnancy: At 6 weeks pregnant ultrasound is still very limited. We should see a gestational sac and hopefully a fetal pole. This is right on the cusp of when we can see a heart beat. So, a heart beat of 105 is still reassuring. In the next few weeks, baby grows a lot! The next ultrasound (even at 8 weeks) will be even a better and a nice fast heart beat (120 - 180) if all is progressing normally. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can an ultrasound show if baby has any brain or heart condition? Is there any condition ultrasound doesn't show?
Large changes: Ultrasound has its limits. It is benign and so does not use radiation or anything else which will put the mother or baby at risk. But it is of lower resolution than x-ray type scans. It will show major organ changes or failures. It cannot show any changes from most biochemical or inherited conditions. So for example it would show anencephaly (no higher brain) but not phenylketonuria. ...Read more
