Ultrasound Shows Feeble Cardiac Activity Of Fetus
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
30 week ultrasound showed asymmetrical brain ventricles on fetus. Rest of the scan perfect. Is this a normal variant?
Not really.: No, this is not a normal variant and is usually indicative of some type of compromise and blood flow, to the side of the brain where the ventricle is more prominent. The good news, is that a fetus's brain is very resilient, and as long as all else goes well from here on in, the baby can develop normally. ...Read more
Left atrium volume index of 36 cc/m2. Is this significant? Everything else on Echo & cardiac MRI was normal. History of NSVT.
Probably not but che: Ask your Cardiologist to see if your left atrium is enlarged or not on the pictures. During an echocardiogram, many measurements (about 25) are taken on grainy pictures so just by pure chance, there's a 50-50 chance that at least 4 measurements will be off. If only 1 measurement I'd off, you cannot draw conclusions from it. If more measurements support a diagnosis, you'll need Cardiology help. GL! ...Read more
Ultrasound showed a gestational sac of 9 wks. Fetal pole not clearly visualized corresponding to 8wks 3 days, unable to detect fetal heart motion. ?
Both foetal kidneys show mild dilation of pelvis measuring 4-5 mm showed up in 26 week fetus ultrasound
Should i be worried?
Fetal Kidneys: Would not be worried with mild dilation of fetal kidneys. This is not an uncommon findings, and usually is not significant. However, your doctor may repeat the ultrasound just to be sure. As long as your growth is fine and amniotic fluid is normal, it's not likely anything to be worried about. ...Read more
On 7&half we TVS shows 2 yolk sac, one with cardiac activity & other is empty. CRL IS 1.13 cm. Is possibility of chromosomal abnormality?
May be: Your obstetrician would be more valuable in discussing those findings and recommend what to do next, take care ...Read more
On 7&half we TVS shows 2 yolk sac, one with cardiac activity, other is empty. CRL is 1.13 cm. is possibility of chromosomal abnormality ?
Always possible: The transvaginal ultrasound at 7.5 weeks does not rule in or out a chromosomal abnormality. It is believed that there are a lot more twins conceived than born and one twin just dies very early and this may be the cause of some first trimester bleeding. Only with early ultrasounds are we finding these 'vanishing twins'. This may be the case with your empty yolk sac. The other twin is usually normal ...Read more
Ct angio score of zero, stress echo normal and event monitor only ectopic beats...does this rule out CAD? Dad heart attack at 50 still alive. Help?
Diagnosed fetal demise. Hcg level dropped from ~19,000 to ~18,000. Says about wks. Small fetal pole without cardiac activity. Is possible for hope?
Oh so sad: I am sorry. No does not sound good. I feel bad for you. Keep appointments with the doctor and monitor the hcg I feel your sadness ...Read more
What this means?
Myocardial perfusion imaging with Tc-99m Sestamibi after exercise
revealed no scintigraphic evidence of hemodynamically significant
ischemia. Medium-sized, mid to basal inferior wall
mild-to-moderate mostly fixed perfusion deficit, excep
Stress test: A stress test with myocardial perfusion imaging is a way of detecting whether the heart muscle is getting insufficient blood supply because of coronary artery disease. It can be normal even with lots of coronary plaque, because it only detects severe narrowings. If there is a "fixed" perfusion defect that generally suggests a scar in the heart muscle from prior heart attack. Need more info. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My gestational age is 6weak and fetal age is 4 weak but no foetal pole or heart beat seen in ultrasound. Only smal gestational sac is seen. Pls guide.
Early pregnancy.: During the early stages of pregnancy, the fetal age calculated by your lmp and the fetal age by the ultrasound can differ. This is frequent and can be a normal occurrence. Depending on the size in millimeters of the gestational sac, one might not see a fetal pole in a very early pregnancy. Seek the advice of your OB and they will follow your hormone levels and re-ultrasound you if necessary. ...Read more
I had a doppler echo show an e/a ratio of .78 suggesting impaired left ventrical relaxation. Stress test and ECG and CT were normal. Is this serious?
What is the sensitivity of EKGs, echocardiograms, and cardiac MRIs for detecting previous heart attacks? Would a normal echocardiogram signal good prognosis in the event of a previous heart attack?
Very good: Cardiac MRI is the best test for detecting a previous heart attack. An echocardiogram is probably next, followed closely by ECG. All of these tests should be pretty good at picking up a MAJOR previous heart attack. A normal echocardiogram after a heart attack is indeed an excellent prognostic marker. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
There is single active intrauterine fetus with Breech presentation. Fetal body movement and cardiac activity are present.
Breech: This means your baby is in the uterus, butt first, the baby is alive and doing well. The only issue here is, if you are near your due date and the baby is breech (butt first), you will likely need a cesarean section unless you opt for an version, a procedure to flip the baby from butt to head first, then you can deliver vaginally. If you are early on the baby changes position all the time. ...Read more
Hi my gestational age is 7 wks and my obstetric scan is over the result is embryonic cardiac activity present but IRREGULARITY NOTED WITH BRADYCARDIA ?
Too early to worry: At such an early gestational age, it is difficult to assess the significance of heart rate and its predictive value as to the outcome of this pregnancy. The best solution would be to reassess by ultrasound in 1-2 weeks, as there is little to nothing that can be done to change whatever might occur with this pregnancy. ...Read more
Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy. ?
ST segment depression when exercising. Cardiac MRI, calcium/coronary ct and echo were all normal. History of NSVT. What could this be? Recommendation?
Talk to cardiologist: A depressed ST segment usually means some degree of coronary disease and in your case it can be best answered by the cardiologist who ordered these tests. In the meanwhile avoid strenuous exertion until you get this issue clarified . ...Read more
