Likely correct: If the ultrasound was performed with the endovaginal probe, a viable pregnancy would easily be confirmed. The absence of embryonic development is either from blighted ovum or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. ...Read more

Perhaps our future.: A human embryo consists of 50-150 embryonic stem cells 4–5 days after fertilization, and those few cells eventually differentiate into all of the different specialized cells that compose the entire human body. Since those stem cells can potentially be anything they want to be, the potential for curing multitudes of human disease, using them, is enormous. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

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
