Hello Fitria, Thank you for the question.
Ultrasonography (USG) is one of the supporting examinations used to assist doctors in knowing a person's disease / medical condition. This tool uses sound waves to produce an image of the organ or body part being examined. What you need to know from the results of this ultrasound examination is the conclusion of the examination results. Thus, in fact you do not need to know too detailed information that is listed on the ultrasound.
The information that I can convey about the examination that you submit is that the ultrasound examination aims to determine the flow of blood from the mother (umbilical artery) to the baby (across the placenta). This examination is intended to determine whether there is an interruption in blood flow to the baby that can potentially cause growth and development problems in the baby and the risks for pregnant women, one of which is preeclampsia.
If you want to know the results of the examination with certainty, the most appropriate step is to ask the obstetrician who conducted the examination. Why? This is because the information you submit is limited and the results of each of the inspection parameters must also be interpreted / related to each other. Furthermore, it is not uncommon, abbreviations or terms listed in the results of an ultrasound examination are an agreement between doctors who work at the hospital so that only those doctors who know for sure. Therefore, please consult with your doctor who did the results of the examination, yes.
I hope this helps.
