Ultrasound was introduced into the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology over four decades ago, and along the way its impact has risen exponentially to a point .

Abstract Background: Measuring the cross-sectional area of umbilical components in normal pregnant women helps in assessing the fetal abnormalities. Very few literatures were available on evaluation of reference values of cross sectional areas of umbilical cord components. Conclusions: Cross sectional area measurements of umbilical cord components can be considered as important tools for estimation of fetal growth. Mesenchymal stem cells in the Wharton's jelly of the human umbilical cord. Stem Cells. Qureshi F, Jacques SM. Marked segmental thinning of the umbilical cord vessels.
Second and third trimester fetuses were included in the study to confirm the accuracy of later predictions. In addition, the mother's decision to know the gender was recorded to determine the prevalence of women wanting prenatal predictions. Methods: A prospective, cross sectional study was conducted in a specialist private obstetric practice in the Illawarra, NSW. A total of fetuses across three trimesters were examined collectively by seven sonographers.
Fetal gender was predicted using the sagittal plane only in the first trimester and either the sagittal or transverse plane in later trimesters.
Phenotypic gender confirmation was obtained from hospital records or direct telephone contact with women postnatally. Male fetuses under 13 weeks were more likely to have gender incorrectly or unable to be assigned. After 13 weeks, success rates for correctly predicting males exceeded that of female fetuses. Statistical differences were noted in the success rates of individual sonographers.
Sixty seven percent of women were in favour of knowing fetal gender from ultrasound. The aim in their fetuses [7,10]. The safety indices for the thermal and cavitation mechan- 2. Thermal and cavitation mechanism ism are thermal and mechanical indices.
The thermal index is the approximation of the maximum temperature rise that When high frequency US gets into a soft tissue, the could occur in an exposed tissue. Thermal index equal to 1 amplitude of its waves decreases as it transverses deeper means an increase of 1 8C.
The mechanical factor represents structures. The result is a loss of the wave amplitude due to the potential for cavitation. It is mainly important for US either absorption or scattering. Absorption is the mechanism exposed lungs, although probably less relevant in human that represents the portion of the wave's energy that is lost by fetuses.
Moreover, it is an indicator for radiation pressure conversion into heat. Scattering is the part of the US wave . Hershkovitz et al. Several studies have suggested abortions, gross malformations or stillbirths. An increase of 2.
In addition, the hematological of exposure. With modern US machines, there is only a parameters had normalized. Neuro-developmental studies negligible rise in temperature, usually less than 1 8C. The relationship between ultrasound and that produces a maximum in situ temperature rise of not the growth of the human fetus more than 1.
Another Moore et al. Those 41 8C for 5 min should be considered potentially hazar- neonates that were exposed to more than one US scan, and dous''. However, a more detailed analysis found the women who were scanned more 3.
The results of their study revealed no effect on the fetal bone. In addition, routine B mode does not differences in weight and height at delivery, and at 6 years of increase temperature above 1.
Stark et al. However, when exposing the fetus to and height. There were no differences in the exposure is higher and thus an elevation of above 1. While evaluating those can be expected.
The effect of such exposure is unknown yet.
Ultrasound and congenital anomalies 4. Experimental studies regarding prenatal There are only a few studies dealing with the association ultrasound exposure between chromosomes abnormalities and US. The results show that little or no change in chromosomal aberration rate Basically, prospective studies addressing the safety of the was found in tissue cultures exposed to US . US procedure are available only in animal models or tissue Basically, no epidemiological data are available regarding cultures.
Tarantal and Hendrickx , published a study in an association between congenital anomalies and US. Thirty pregnancies were studied, half US scan during pregnancy, it is almost impossible to conduct were exposed to US, and the other half were scanned just such randomized clinical trials. In between the lines, no with the transducer placed on standbys. The scanned fetuses documented elevation in anomalies due to US scanning was had higher Apgar scores.
Those results may point out that reported in human fetuses. Scanned relationship between childhood malignancies and US.
The neonates had also lower birth weights and were shorter than authors interviewed mothers of children who died from the control group, as was documented previously by several different types of malignancies, and with mothers of healthy other studies. In addition, those neonates had lowered white matched controls.
No differences in terms of exposure to US blood cell counts. Doppler injuries addition, US scanning has no long-term effects such as cognitive function or change visual or hearing functions. Color Doppler imaging and pulsed wave spectral Doppler However, although B and M mode scans are safe during measurements of the maternal and fetal circulation have pregnancy, color, power and pulsed Doppler procedures brought new applications and concerns for routine obstetric should be performed with caution due to possible thermal US use.
Lastly, a new US method, the three-dimensional vessels, fetal arteries and veins are integral to the modern technique, was introduced. While there are no studies assessment of the mother and fetus at risk.
Thus, resulting in regarding the safety of this novel topic, the short acquisition a more commonplace use of the color and pulsed Doppler. Central nerve system cells were able to detect US wave by changing their conductance.
Biological effects on ultrasound: mechanisms and clinical conclusions of the study were that the central nerve system, implications, NCRP Report no. Is it safe to use diagnostic ultrasound during the first conduction, and that cavitation has no effect on soft tissue in trimester.
Contrast enhanced power imaging is not contra-indicated on thermal grounds, some Doppler harmonic imaging influence on visualization of renal vascularization.
