Could a pregnancy be missed on ultrasound due to the scar from a previous C-section ?

In brief: Usually not

If scarring does interfere with an ultrasound, we usually do a vaginal ultrasound which not only bypasses the scarring; it gives us better resolution and a better scan.
It's safe and gives us better ultrasound detail.
