How Does Ultrasound Work?
An ultrasound produces high-frequency sound waves that bounce back off the observed tissue, interpret these echoes, and create an image on a screen.
Medical News Today says, “Ultrasound is sound that travels through soft tissue and fluids, but it bounces back, or echoes, off denser surfaces. This is how it creates an image.”
What Are Ultrasounds Used For?
Ultrasounds are very useful for diagnosing, investigating, and examining body tissues. Early discovery of an ectopic pregnancy is vital to protect a woman’s wellness. Thankfully, ultrasound helps verify pregnancy placement and can provide peace of mind.
Gestational age is determined by the date of a woman’s last menstrual period. Some women are unsure about the date of their last menstrual period. An ultrasound can measure the fetus and help determine accurate dating.
An ultrasound indicates if pregnancy is taking place where it should be and is not ectopic (outside the uterus). This imaging is important because if an ectopic pregnancy is present, immediate medical intervention may be required for the health and safety of the woman.
Is your pregnancy viable? During the scan, the heart rate is measured to help determine if the pregnancy is progressing. We do not use Doppler technology at our facility due to health concerns.
Looking for information about taking an abortion pill or different types of abortion procedures? Abortion providers offer both medical and surgical abortions. The types of abortion that may be available depend on factors such as how far along a woman is in her pregnancy and what kinds of procedures an abortion provider offers.
It may seem like abortion is the solution to moving on with your life or getting back on track. No matter what you choose – to carry or to abort – your life is forever changed. Abortion carries the potential for physical complications, which are significant if they happen to you.
Consider all the facts and make an informed decision, one you can live with long term. We can help educate you about all types of abortion and confirm your pregnancy details.
