Follicle Rupture Free Fluid

Normally, several follicles (93) are detectable in the 1st days of the menstrual cycle, seen as 4-6-mm small cycsts in the ovary. After the 10th day of the cycle, one follicle becomes dominant, the so-called graafian follicle, with a diameter of about 10 mm (Fig. 61.2). Thereafter, this follicle shows linear growth, increasing in size by about 2 mm per day until it reaches a size of 18-25 mm just before ovulation. In the meantime the other follicles regress. It is relevant for fertility therapy...

7mm Gestational

In a cycle stimulated as part of infertility therapy, merely measuring the serum hormone levels can neither rule out hy-perstimulated ovaries (Fig. 62.5) nor reliably estimate the number of preovulatory follicles (93). It is for this reason that the number of maturing graafian follicles be monitored sonographically so that therapy can be terminated and contraceptive measures advised when more than two preovulatory follicles develop. About 5 of women have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)...

The ascending colon can be seen in the lateral sagittal section (Fig. 52.1 a). In most cases, air in the colon precludes visualization of its lumen. Large amounts of retained fecal matter (coprostasis) can occasionally be found in the colon of old patients. A transverse colon (43) without any evidence of inflammatory mural thickening (transverse section of the upper abdomen) is shown in Figures 52.1b and c. This contrasts with the thickened wall (74) found in ulcerative colitis or ischemia...

Not all echoes that originate at an acoustic interface return to the transducer without further reflection. If several strongly reflecting boundaries are encountered, the sound waves can be reflected back and forth before they eventually return as echo to the transducer. The resultant delay in registering these echoes leads to reverberation echoes 51 . These reverberation echoes project as several parallel lines in the anterior aspect near the transducer of the urinary bladder Figs. 10.1 and...
