New computer softwar

Open-uri20120818-8785-1ee6n26
New computer software allows for the individual planes acquired during regular prenatal ultrasound scanning to be collated, manipulated and illustrated in a three-dimensional fashion for the uninitiated couples to be able to effortlessly visualize their unborn baby. It provides few/no significant advantage over traditional 2D prenatal ultrasound for the experienced physician/sonographer.

Dr. Simon Kimm answered:

What occurs during a testicle ultrasound?

Several steps.

Stringio
The ultrasound (US) technician will have you undress and lie on your back on the examining table. A cold US gel will be placed on the US probe, which is used in a sweeping motion across the scrotum and groin to create the images. Many standard images will be taken, along with some measurements and doppler evaluation for the radiologist to evaluate. No anesthetic is required.

What all can fetal ultrasound at 20 weeks tell you?

A lot of details.

Open-uri20120821-6044-15zixpg
Fetal gender, anatomy in detail (including brain, heart, spine, kidneys, extremities), amniotic fluid volume, due date estimation within 10 days of actual date, cervical and uterine anomaly detection, placental location and pathology. It is a very cost-effective test for any pregnancy and should be universally performed.

Dr. Danae Steele answered:

Since tof is congenital, why doesnt fetal ultrasound always find it?

Heart defects

Sonogram
Tetralogy of Fallot, a heart defect, can be difficult to diagnose prenatally. The heart is very small in a developing baby, and specific images must be obtained to make that diagnosis. If the baby is in a bad position, or the mother is obese, or the doctor doesn't have a lot of experience diagnosing heart defects in a fetus, ToF can be missed.

What is the definition or description of: Fetal ultrasound?

Safe fetal imaging.

Open-uri20130304-31316-qyf920
Fetal ultrasound is an amazing and safe imaging method employing the piezoelectric properties of quartz crystals to convert electrical current to mechanical vibrations; this creates ultra-high frequency sound waves that can penetrate inside the pregnant woman's body and bounce off different structures with variable characteristics. A computer then processes the feedback signal to image the fetus!

Dr. Danae Steele answered:

Why do they measure the MCA in maternal fetal ultrasound?

Problem with baby

Artery
Blood flow in the MCA (Middle Cerebral Artery) may be abnormal if a baby is not getting enough oxygen, either because it has anemia so that it's blood cannot carry enough oxygen, or because it is not getting enough oxygen from the placenta. If your baby is not growing well, or if you have an infection or problem that might be causing anemia, your doctor may look at the baby's MCA with ultrasound.

What could a small head on fetal ultrasound be a sign of?

Wrong dates!

Head
The most common reason for suspected fetal microcephaly is erroneous due date assignment. If microcephaly is real, it could be part of several fetal syndromes with poor neurodevopmental outcome, such as aneuploidies (Down), perinatal infections (toxoplasmosis, rubella, CMV), or metabolic disorders.
