Opening or relaxing the woman’s legs more will improve access for panning movements. Visualizing a retroverted uterus can be difficult because the vaginal diameter might limit posterior rocking movements so as to prevent visualization of the fundus in a steeply retroverted uterus. Lack of sound penetration, due to the high frequency of the transducer and/or bowel gas, can also be limiting factors. Large and/or multiple fibroids will affect the quality of transvaginal images for two reasons: first, fibroids situated between the probe and the endometrium or gestation sac might displace the area of interest beyond the range of insonation of the high frequency transducer; second, if the area of interest remains within the field of insonation, the sound beam might be attenuated or absorbed by a smaller fibroid such that the organs further from the probe cannot be imaged adequately.
Manual dexterity with either technique will be lacking initially, but improves rapidly with practice. Ensure that you are sitting comfortably and at the right height relative to the woman’s abdomen when scanning transabdominally, or to the perineum when scanning transvaginally. If your seat is too low, you will quickly develop an aching shoulder; if too high, your arm will ache from continuously stretching downward. Try to think of the probe as an extension of your arm rather than a foreign object, and do not grip it fiercely because this will also produce a painful arm and shoulder.
The embryo changes from being a straight line at the top of the yolk sac to being kidney-bean-shaped, with the yolk sac separated from the embryo by the vitelline duct. The crown–rump length measures 4 to 10 mm. If the heart rate is not detectable the diagnosis of missed miscarriage is almost certain. The crown–rump length measures 11 to 16 mm. The rhombencephalon becomes distinguishable as a diamondshaped cavity, enabling distinction of the cephalad and caudal poles of the embryo. The spine is seen as double echogenic parallel lines.
