Example text

A full bladder is only necessary in non-pregnant women, those of less than 8 weeks gestation or in women in whom a low-lying placenta is suspected. The woman attending for a transabdominal gynecological or early pregnancy examination should be asked to drink two pints of water or squash 1 h before attending the department. She should not empty her bladder until after the scan is completed. She should be made to understand that one cup of coffee on the way to the department is inadequate and will result in a long wait.

Please note that all reference made to weeks of gestation in this text is based on gestational age and not conceptual or embryological age, unless otherwise stated. Several ultrasound parameters have been used to estimate gestational age. The most commonly used are: ● ● ● ● ● mean sac diameter gestation sac volume crown–rump length (CRL) biparietal diameter (BPD; see Chapter 7) femur length (see Chapter 7). 1. 0 MHz because the probe can be placed in close proximity to the organ of interest, namely the uterus.

The gestation sac is the first pregnancy structure that can be detected by ultrasound. It is usually visualized from 31 days or 4+3 weeks of gestation using the transvaginal method, when it measures 2–3 mm in diameter (Fig. 4).

A retroverted uterus occurs in about one-third of women and is more common after pregnancy. The uterine fundus and the upper part of the uterine body might not be visualized in this situation because it is impossible to direct the ultrasound beam at right angles to them.
