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

Pregnancy ultrasound dating seems off. Or is my gf lying?

Pregnancy ultrasound dating seems off. Or is my gf lying?

Discuss it with her.: In general, ultrasound dates in the first half of the pregnancy are more accurate than menstrual dates. I would recommend discussing paternity issues with your partner in a calm and dispassionate way, realizing that ovulation does not occur the same time every cycle and that can throw her estimation of the pregnancy age or conception date off. If you are still concerned, paternity dna tests exist. ...Read more
