The ultrasound report says "cbd is prominent,measuring approx 8.2 mm in size." What does this mean?

The common bile duct: drains bile from the liver and gallbladder into the duodenum. The upper limit of normal for your age would be 5-6mm diameter. The duct can dilate if it is obstructed by a stone, mass, or stricture. The duct can also be passively dilated following gallbladder removal or other biliary surgery/procedures, in which case it is not due to obstruction but is the "new normal" for you. Talk to your doc. ...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

Congratulations - however keep in mind that even in experienced centers the detection rate of anomalies may not surpass 60-80%. ...Read more

What does it mean " the gallblader is physiologically distended" in an ultrasound report. Had fasting for 12hours before the test?

Probably: Means that the gallbladder is normal, as fasting for 12 hours before the ultrasound would be expected to cause the gallbladder to retain bile and become full or distended. Eating causes the gallbladder to empty its bile fluid. It is expected that one would not eat before the ultrasound so the gallbladder can be seen properly. ...Read more

What does transverse diameter cerebellum , slightly prominent mean on a prenatal ultrasound report ?

What does transverse diameter cerebellum , slightly prominent mean on a prenatal ultrasound report ?

Probably nothing: You'll have to ask the OB/GYN if there's any clinical significance to that finding since there is much more to both the report as well as the pregnancy than you have told us. The statement by itself is saying that the technologist doing the ultrasound feels the WIDTH of the cerebellum (part of brain in back that controls balance) is VERY WELL visualized.. But that doesn't say much in my opinion. ...Read more

In my ultrasound report...doctor has highlighted that "no fetal anomaly detected"...what does it mean...plz tell me in detail?

My ultrasound report says "gall bladder is distended show smooth walls, lumen is echo free, common bile duct is not dilated" What does this all mean? Should I be worried?

Gallbladder U/S: This sounds like a normal report. Echo free means no stones or polyps were seen. No bile duct dilation is normal. Gallbladder distention can be normal (it fills with bile then contracts to release the bile with meals). Of course, the report should be interpreted by the ordering physician, taking into account your symptoms that led to it being ordered in the first place. ...Read more

What should be my due date?
1 ultrasound report says that its 11 january
But other says that its 20th january 2015
My LMP is 3rd april 2014(irregular)

Earliest: The earliest ultrasound is the most accurate and I would rely on that since you say your periods are irregular. The margin of error (how many weeks plus or minus) for ultrasounds increases as pregnancy progresses. All 3 day embryos are pretty much the same size but babies at term can be normal and be 6-9 pounds. ...Read more
