Ultrasound Results Please Explain.?
My doctor would like to ask about the results of the ultrasound, write this like BPD 39.2 mm GA 17w6d, AC 127mm, GA 18w0d, EFW 226 g. How about this doctor.
Ultrasound is an examination performed on pregnant women to determine the condition of the fetus and pregnancy. When ultrasound, several parameters are examined, namely the fetus (fetal measurements which are then converted into an estimate of fetal weight and an estimated gestational age, and fetal heart rate), placenta, umbilical cord, amniotic fluid, and detection of fetal abnormalities.
BPD is a biparietal diameter or size from the temple left to right. AC is the abdominal circumference of the fetus. GA is the gestational age or estimated gestational age. EFW is an estimated fetal weight or estimated fetal weight.
From the results of these ultrasound measurements combined with interviews, physical examinations, and other additional examinations if any (such as blood tests and urine tests for pregnant women), the obstetrician will draw conclusions about your condition. In general, from the information you convey at this time, your gestational age is around 17-18 weeks with an estimated fetal weight of 226 grams.
I suggest that you discuss again with your obstetrician regarding the results of your ultrasound examination because conclusions regarding the condition of the fetus are not only based on ultrasound but are also combined with the results of physical examinations, interviews, and other supporting examinations if any For further pregnancy control, you don't need to hesitate to ask any questions that are not clear to the examining doctor.
