Ultrasound On Uterus
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
Shadowing: Is an ultrasound term often seen behind calcification and some solid masses as a result of sound wave reflection. I don't know if this is what you are referring too. If used in some other context the term doesn't convey useful information. ...Read more
Normal variation: The position of the ovaries varies quite a bit from women to women within the pelvis. Secondly, gas within adjacent bowel loops will distort ultrasound images and 'hide' anything behind that loop. Thus looking from a different angle ie transvaginally, we can find the ovaries that we can see on the transabdominal portion of a scan. ...Read more
Not necessarily.: The differential diagnosis includes ectopic pregnancy (life-threatening), miscarriage and early normal pregnancy with or without ovarian pathology (it could be a corpus luteum normal cyst). Serial beta HCG testing and a follow-up sonogram should help your ob/gyn reach the correct diagnosis for you soon. Best of luck! ...Read more
Not typically: A plain transvaginal sono will not usually show a chronic scar of the fallopian tubes. Injecting sterile saline into the uterine lumen can allow for visualization of the tubes and if fluid is then seen in the abdomen then patency of at least one tube may be inferred. This is called a sono hysterogram. ...Read more
It's possible: for an ovary to not be visualized if it is positioned behind bowel loops. The ultrasound beam does not penetrate through bowel gas. If the ovary cannot be seen on transvaginal ultrasound, it can sometimes be successfully visualized on transabdominal ultrasound. If that fails, pelvic MRI is also useful. ...Read more
Will the ultrasound scanning of uterus shows whether pregnant or not.shows uterus size is 13.8mm.
Pelvic ultrasound(trans-veg.)shows-acutely anteverted smallish uterus-47X32X46 mm. right ovary looks endometriotic& a haemorrhagic cyst18mm-is it bad?
See your provider: This sounds like a normal size uterus and normal size ovary. Endometriomas are ovarian cysts which contain old blood in them. 18 mm is pretty small. If you haven't had it, you might still benefit from a laparoscopy to look for and treat endometriosis especially if you have 4 years of infertility. You might also need reproductive endocrinologist (infertility specialist) if you haven't already. ...Read more
Could a pregnancy not show up on transvag. Ultrasound at possibly 6-7 weeks pregnant? Like no sac and 3 mm endometrium shown on ultrasound.
No: There should be findings on Ultrasound at that point. They also screen the ovaries and tubes to make sure it is not an ectopic pregnancy. If you US is negative then you're either not pregnant or so early that it won't show, but that would be only in the first couple weeks not at 6-7 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
U/S shows 7cm hypoechoic mass/endometrioma on ovary, prominent uterus, irregular endocavity, polyps .. history of endometriosis. is hysterectomy next?
Can a transvaginal ultrasound and/or pelvic ultrasound show enlarged lymph nodes around the ovary?
Yes,: but not reliably. Regional bowel gas can obscure pelvic lymph nodes. Also the position of the ovaries is variable, and they may not be situated next to internal iliac nodal chains. So not seeing enlarged lymph nodes on a pelvic sonogram is not sufficient to exclude them. CT or MRI is much better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ask the provider: Obstetricians cannot be expected to know every single alternative therapy that pregnant women might consider. Instead, it is the duty of the specialists who provide treatments to understand how their therapy can affect pregnancy. High pulse ultrasound does have some potential risks to a developing fetus. ...Read more
