Below are scan pictures taken during the early weeks of pregnancy.
Measurements taken at these early scans will help to; confirm a pregnancy, date the pregnancy and to see any problems that may occur in the pregnancy ( low lying placenta, twins etc.).
Scans in early pregnancy are usually performed in the first trimester around 12 weeks.
You may have a earlier scan, if you are experiencing pain or bleeding for example or unsure of LMP dates.
Transabdominal ultrasound (TAU) and also the transvaginal ultrasound (TVU) are valuable diagnostic tools in obstetrics and gynecology.
Transabdominal ultrasound will provide a panoramic view of the abdomen and pelvis and is noninvasive, whereas transvaginal ultrasound provides a more limited pelvic view and requires insertion of a probe into the vagina.
Transabdominal ultrasound cannot reliably diagnose pregnancies that are less than 6 weeks gestation.
Transvaginal ultrasound, by contrast, can detect pregnancies earlier, at approximately 4 to 5 weeks gestation.
Prompt diagnosis made possible by transvaginal ultrasound can, therefore, result in earlier treatment.
