Sonogram (Definition)

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

What are 3d ultrasounds? What is the kind of ultrasound that creates 3d looking pictures? Is it an issue of level 2 ultrasound vs. Something else?

What are 3d ultrasounds? What is the kind of ultrasound that creates 3d looking pictures? Is it an issue of level 2 ultrasound vs. Something else?

2D vs 3D: 3d ultrasound is a software upgrade to newer ultrasound machines. The software allows the ultrasound machine to create beautiful images. These additional images rarely improve the diagnostic accuracy if the ultrasound exam. A level 2 obstetrical ultrasound does not typically include 3d images. ...Read more

Is a high def ultrasound common with twins?

????: Don't quite know what you mean. All our fetal sonos are done with the highest possible definition. There are a few more things we evaluate with twins such as the number of placentas and the sac anatomy. Or as we are fond of saying, "twice the work for the same fee!". ...Read more

Saw twins on my ultrasound but one is bigger than the other. Is that a problem?

Saw twins on my ultrasound but one is bigger than the other. Is that a problem?

Depends: In general it is common for one twin to be slightly larger than the other. In some rare cases it can be a problem ( usually with identical not fraternal twin) usually serial sonograms will be done to evaluate the growth of both twins. Ask your md what the size difference means in your case. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: ultrasound to evaluate twins?

Prenatal study: This imaging study is ordered by the doctor to have an idea of the fetus's anatomy, size, gestational age, position of the placenta, amount of amniotic fluid and overall well-being. In the case of twins, you can also compare their sizes and growth. Assessing two babies in utero by ultrasound can be more technically difficult than assessing one because one twin can hide parts of the other. ...Read more

Had ultrasound at 6. 2 weeks one had heartbeat 122. Dr said was a twin other sac in ultrasound will I expel it empty sac or does it go away?

Had ultrasound at 6. 2 weeks one had heartbeat 122. Dr said was a twin other sac in ultrasound will I expel it empty sac or does it go away?

Dissolves: Commonly twin gestation turns into single one due to loss of one fetus. As long as this happens early, there is usually no consequences for the remaining fetus. The other one is reabsorbed. Usually this happens for a good reason, and may mean one is not healthy. You could not have prevented it or caused it either. Get followup U/S to make sure you baby is growing well inside you. Best wishes !! ...Read more
