Ultrasound Tifa Scan During Pregnancy
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

Give it time: Our technology to detect pregnancies is amazing but sometimes we see structures well before they get formed. Give it time for the sac to form structures; you can repeat the US in 1-2 weeks to assess growth. This can be correlated with hormone level checks as well to ensure appropriate rise Best Wishes Dr M ...Read more
FOR WHAT?: An ultrasound at 7 months is very poor for determination of gestational age. The exam will measure fetal size and estimate fetal weight. Fetal size at 7 months can be off by as much as 3 weeks for gestational age due to individual variability. Moral of the story is to get an early sono before 12 weeks for gestational age determinations. ...Read more

Specific things about baby like heart anatomy, facial features and the like, require a skilled technician using special equipment & interpretation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If urine pregnancy tests were giving false negatives and a pelvic CT scan was performed at a possible 7 weeks pregnant, would the fetus show in scan?
Precautions: The radiology place I am sure would have taken the precaution of finding if you were pregnant before doing the scan and should have used a reliable test. And yes, if you were pregnant, as long as the area of interest shows the pregnancy they should be able to see it and give you advise…but then again, it should not happen. ...Read more
