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

Can an ultrasound tell if spot in kidney is a tumor?

Can an ultrasound tell if spot in kidney is a tumor?

Solid or cystic: Ultrasound can tell if a lesion in the kidney is solid or cystic. A simple, uncomplicated cyst is usually nothing to worry about, and therefore no further workup would be needed. However, an ultrasound cannot tell if a solid mass is benign or malignant, so if the lesion is solid, further evaluation would be necessary. ...Read more

Lmp and early vaginal ultrasound matched @ 6 weeks 5 days matched exactly. Does that mean I ovulated on cd14? 28 day cycles!

Lmp and early vaginal ultrasound matched @ 6 weeks 5 days matched exactly. Does that mean I ovulated on cd14? 28 day cycles!

Likely so, but...: Life is not exact, no matter what the numbers show. A woman with 28-day cycles ovulates on day 14, but that means the same thing as ovulating on day 13 or 15. Dates and numbers are estimates, not to be thought of as "exact". For example, the due date is usually not the day the baby gets born, because babies are also born a day or a few days sooner or later. ...Read more

My 13 year old daughter is having a vaginal ultrasound and she is very nervous will I be able to be with her and what should I tell her to expect?

Intravaginal U/S: Chances are she will have a female technician. You will be with her in the room while the study is performed. A small instrument covered by plastic changed between patients will be inserted with lubrication jelly that is warmed ahead of time.

Lesions seen ultrasound do not necessarily indicate cancer but further testing is warranted. ...Read more

According to IUI I should be 6.5 weeks along but vaginal ultrasound measured sac at 5 w 1 d....confused?

Repeat US in 1 week: Ultrasound assessment at this early stage is accurate in defining several important things, including fetal pole, fetal cardiac activity, heart rate, the presents of a yolk sac, and the shape of the gestational sac that contains the fetus. It can be somewhat inaccurate for the gestational age. A follow up ultrasound in 1-2 weeks and checking blood b-hcg levels would help. ...Read more
