Lateral ventricles: The lateral ventricles are one area of the fetal brain that contain cerebral spinal fluid. The sonogram measurement is considered abnormal when it is > 10 mm. You listed 8 mm which is in the normal range. Discuss your specific results with your doctor and ask if any abnormal findings were noted.

Hello, I had done tiffa scan on Oct 1 4 impressions result was missed abortion as I am not satisfied vit the report can I get it done next day Pl sig.

I don't know: I'm not sure what determines that in India. Tiffa scans are known as Ultrasounds in the states and are very safe in pregnancy or at any time since there is no radiation exposure. The question here would be insurance coverage or patient's willingness to pay and the doctor's willingness to order it. Another alternative would be quantitative HCG levels 2 or 3 days apart. With a missed abortion they fall ...Read more

How accurate is ultrasound done at 20 weeks for gender determination of fetus. Is obstretics ultrasound with same accuracy. Same question for 22 wks?

Depends.: My rule has always been: don't guess! If the fetus is in a poor position for viewing the genitals then no determination can be made. At 20 weeks, if the genital region is visible there is a very high level of accuracy for gender determination. It all depends on the skill of the person doing the scan. ...Read more

My wife done tiffa scan at 20 th week, doctor told baby kidney is 3.7 mm. Is that normal?

My wife done tiffa scan at 20 th week, doctor told baby kidney is 3.7 mm. Is that normal?

No: The normal length of a kidney in a 20 wk fetus should be 2.1 cm (21 mm). I trust the other kidney was more normal in size? It is possible that the small kidney may not have formed and the adrenal gland was measured. Sometimes a kidney may form in the pelvis or on the same side as the other kidney. The fetus may require a repeat scan later on to further evaluate the situation. ...Read more
