In brief: Accuracy

Accuracy of ultrasound dating of pregnancy varies with the stage of pregnancy.
It is likely that an accurate interpretation could not be made on the first visit. Since the risk of ultrasound evaluation is extremely low, there is no need to be concerned about returning for this evaluation. I cannot answer the reason for the request for follow-up the next day, it would be better to ask your physician.
