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

I had a transvaginal ultrasound done what was all the red and blue?

I had a transvaginal ultrasound done what was all the red and blue?

Yes: Probably. If you end up having a problem with the uterus it is much better to catch it early rather than later. If that's the result of the ultrasound then you will be extremely grateful that it was done. One of the signs of a potential problem is abnormal bleeding in your age group (possibly with some other risk factors). Get it done. ...Read more

Hello I wanted to know why my vaginal wall has red spots on it I'm not sure if it's from the friction after intercourse ?

Hello I wanted to know why my vaginal wall has red spots on it I'm not sure if it's from the friction after intercourse ?

Most likely: If the red spots appeared soon after vaginal intercourse, it might be due to friction to the area. If you see these persist or change in appearance like become more like bumps, these should be examined for any infection and other cysts common in vaginal region and require separate treatments. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to measure close to 3 weeks behind on transvaginal ultrasound? U/s showed fetal pole measuring 6 weeks w/ no heartbeat yet.

Transvaginal USG: Transvaginal ultrasound is most accurate duringvthe first trimester by 5-7 days. If >than 1 week off then your dating may be off because of ovulation etc. your period also plays a role in this. If your cycles are irregular then ultrasound dates may be off. Would considerva repest ultasound in a week to evaluate and see if pregnancy is progressing. Good luck. ...Read more
