Transabdominal Ultrasound 8 Weeks
Transabdominal ultrasounds ordered by your physician could be done at most hospital radiology departments or at large medical groups. They require that you have a full bladder.
Normally the ordering physician would make recommendations at to choices of facilities to perform the ultrasound. ...Read more
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
Trans =across/beyond: It is basically an ultrasound performed on the outside abdominal wall to see organs on the inside (as pictured here), thus seeing things across/beyond the abdominal wall. Have fun learning. Good luck. ...Read more
None: The examiner should have an order for the test being performed and should not need anything specific from you other than any pertinent history relating to the reason for the test. If you have had organs removed (ovary, uterus, kidney, gall bladder, etc) the sonographer will want to know. ...Read more
Yes: Yes. In adults both kidneys are usually visible. ...Read more
Not likely: Ultrasound dating is quite accurate in the earlier part of pregnancy. While it may be off by 2-3 days it would be highly unlikely to be "wrong" by 2 weeks. Keep in mind that the ultrasound age indicates the number of weeks since the first day of the last menstrual period, not the date of conception. This may explain a two week difference if you arethinking about date of conception. ...Read more
See doctor: Did the ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis of placenta previa? If so, the bleeding is most likely due to the previa itself since the ultrasound was a transabdominal one and not transvaginal. If you have placenta previa and are having vaginal bleeding, please see or call your doctor immediately, as it may progress to preterm labor, and you will need a c-section and other emergent medical care. ...Read more
Transabdominal: Most cvs procedure are performed through the cervix and vagina, and the ultrasound done to guide the doctor is done transabdominally. ...Read more
6-7 weeks from LMP: Transvaginal ultrasound can detect fetal heartbeat earlier than transabdominal ultrasound (5-6 weeks after lmp). Transabdominal ultrasound varies a bit more primarily due to differences in maternal size. In general, the fetal heartbeat should be visible transabdominally by 7 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period. ...Read more
Access point.: Both transabdominal and transvaginal sonogram are useful and may even be complementary in imaging the pregnant uterus or non-pregnant pelvis. Different probes are used for each type and the transvaginal approach is clearly less comfortable, however it has the advantage of improved imaging in obese women, in early pregnancy and in fetal brain lesions in late pregnancy. ...Read more
Too early: We usually don't see the heartbeat until 4+ weeks after conception. Before that is too early. ...Read more
How accurate is a transabdominal ultrasound in assessing an ovarian cyst? Had to stop transvagingal ultrasound, extremely painful
Look here: Look here at transvaginal us image of the uterus: http://www. Conciergeradiologist. Com/ultrasound-images. Html. The uterus is generally harder to visualize in its complete extent on transabdominal images, but this is a close approximation of what is seen in transabdominal ultrasound (transvaginal is the better of the two). ...Read more
She have been transabdominal ultrasound, thefindings are non-visualized ovaries and having only a size of uterus 1.40cmx1.11cm x w0.88 is this harmful?
Not sure: What symptoms are occurring that required the ultrasound? Was there bleeding, pain or just curious? I wish I could give you a better answer, however, sizing alone without other information to assess the situation is useless. ...Read more
No known stats.: First, this is not the ultrasound usually done today, transvaginal is. This is done with a manual pelvic exam and ca-125 levels. Second, there has not been a prominent study that I have seen that determines the accuracy of diagnosis by this test. The most accurate way is probably surgery, where specimens can be taken and examined under a microscope to see if it is cancer. ...Read more
Do I need transvirginal ultrasound, not transabdominal? Have irregular bleeding but it could be caused by pill. How do you know?
Why do you need US?: If you have irregular bleeding caused by pill (birth control pills), that does not usually warrant an ultrasound. Unless there is another reason that you need an ultrasound, then I am not sure that either is necessary. If irregular bleeding is caused by pill, perhaps you need to be off that pill and perhaps try a different BCP. In a nonpregnant woman, a transvaginal US is often needed. ...Read more
When looking at ultrasound pics: transvaginal: right of pic is right of pt body transabdominal: left of pic is right of pt body correct or incorrect?
It all depends: It depends on how it was printed. The best answer is to ask your ob/gyn or the tech who did the ultra sound. ...Read more
Screening for myomas. This should be done with transvaginal / rectal ultrasound or is still possible via transabdominal USG? I'm still a virgin.
Transabdominal ok: With modern u/s technology, larger myomas can usually be seen on a transabdominal ultrasound. In some women (such as a very obese women), its not possible to see them and a transvaginal u/s is needed. In my practice, we don't do ANY rectal ultrasounds to look for fibroids. Its easier to see the uterus with a transvaginal u/s but transabdominal is usually adequate. Best wishes! ...Read more
6 weeks pregnant (conception date). transabdominal ultrasound doesn't show anything. Possible etopic? No s/s of ectopic.
Different ultrasound: At 6 week gestation, your developing baby would be no larger than a pencil eraser and could easily be missed on a transabdominal ultrasound which depends on the skill of the of the ultrasonographer. Performing a transvaginal ultrasound would be another option. Waiting and repeating the transabdominal may be a good option as well, and your obstetrician should be able to help guide the choice. ...Read more
How accurate is a transabdominal ultrasound done at 13 weeks pregnancy? Due date given was june 16th 2013 so when did I conceive?
11 weeks before: If the scan said you were 13 weeks that day, then 11 weeks before that day in general would be time of conception. ...Read more
Kinda: Pregnancies are usually dated based on the first day of the last menstrual period (gestational age). Everyone uses that assumption even though you usually get pregnant about two weeks later. You are correct in that fetal age is two weeks less than gestational age. Usually, only embryologists who study fetal development use fetal age. ...Read more
Less variability: There is very little difference in size between different 6-8 week embryos. Therefore there is less uncertainty of their ages. The further along the pregnancy gets, the greater the manifestations of individual differences. So a fetus that will be 9 lbs at birth will look bigger than one destined to be 6 lbs. ...Read more
Less accurate: 14 weeks places you at the beginning of second trimester, which makes the ultrasound margin of error at +/- 2 weeks. Even in first trimester there is a 1 week error margin. ...Read more
Early Ultrasounds: Early ultrasounds are thought to be the most accurate. ...Read more
Yes: Yes 3d ultrasounds are safe.Get a more detailed answer ›
I had ultrasounds at 8 and 12 weeks and I got the same due date at both how accurate is the due date?
3-7 days: Early sonograms are very accurate with about a 3-7 day margin of error. ...Read more
Can a fetus that shows at the ultrasound 8 weeks can actually be 14 weeks and the ultrasound to show more?
Don't completely: Understand the question, but a normal 14 week fetus could never be mistaken for an 8 week gestation. ...Read more
