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.

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

What does white spot in babies stomach mean during 20 weeks ultrasound.?

What does white spot in babies stomach mean during 20 weeks ultrasound.?

Usually nothing.: Echogenic material in the fetal stomach is sometimes seen in prenatal ultrasound, but is usually of no clinical significance. This may be swallowed vernix caseosa, desquamed epithelial clumps, or metabolic products of subchorionic blood after a hemorrhagic episode. In the latter case, the fetal gastric debris is still not a problem in and of itself, rather a marker of a previously existing problem. ...Read more

Could an abdominal ultrasound at 8 weeks be off by a month (month further along)? Fetus looks like a little bean & sac is still visible.

Could an abdominal ultrasound at 8 weeks be off by a month (month further along)? Fetus looks like a little bean & sac is still visible.

Yes: Better at 8 weeks is to have a vaginal ultrasound as they are much more accurate for dating pregnancies this early. A vaginal ultrasound should be off by at most, +/- 5 days, no more. Definitely not a month. Ultrasound is possibly more accurate at this age than is last menstrual period. If LMP and ultrasound differ by more than 5 days, doctors will use ultrasound to date pregnancy. ...Read more

What is the range of accuracy for an 11 week abdominal ultrasound? Possible to mistake an 14-15 weeks fetus for an 11 week fetus? Crl measured 45mm.

Sono reliable: For dating pregnancy, an ultrasound at the stage you define is a very good time to do so. A fetus that demonstrates cardiac activity and appears to be 11 wks by crl is reliably 11 weeks. That's one reason for doing ultrasound. Abdominal ultrasound of the fetus at this stage does have limited accuracy with regard to fetal anatomy, but dating should be quite reliable. ...Read more
