Nobody would doubt great importance of ultrasound examination in the obstetric practice. Possibility to reveal a lot of diseases and abnormalities in pregnancy development, harmlessness, simplicity of performing in various situations caused wide application of this method. Complex examination of pregnant women, which also includes dinamic echography, allows timely revealing fetal complications, to estimate the condition of mother-foetus system. It helps to distinguis multiple, heterotopic and other variants of pregnancy and, therefore, helps to choose the adequate obstetric tactics when revealing abnormalities. Till quite recently, the examination through the front abdominal wall, which needs the urinal bladder to be maximum full, was most widely applied. The bladder here is an original accustic "window", through which the examinated organs are seen. Now in many cases the transvaginal probe, which is introduced into vagina, is used. At the expence of close location to the examinated organs more qualitative images can be received and the necessity to fill the urinal bladder falls off SonoFly-3000 hard&software complex allows scanning with any of the afore mentioned ways.
The probes which can be successfully used for obstetric practice
|Photograph||Type/Code||Frequency, MHz||Radius, mm||View Zone/Angle, mm||Image Format||Application|
|UT-C3.5R60/64*||3.5||60||60||Convex||Abdominal, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Pediatrics|
|HC3-6ED||3.0...6.0||60||61.7||Convex||Abdominal, Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Gynecology|
|L2-5ED||2.0...5.0||-||85||Linear||Abdominal, Obstetrics, Gynecology|
The possibilities of SonoFly-3000 unit for ultrasound diagnostics are not limited
by real-time imaging.
The patient to be examined is first registered in the card file:
If the data were introduced into the card file earlier, you can find them with the
help of convenient search function.
Then, before the examination begins, you should choose the pre-set program (in this case it is obstetrics):
The choice of the program prior to scanning helps to limit rather extensive list of measurements and calculations, set in the system, and to leave those that are used in obstetrics. SonoFly-3000 unit for ultrasound diagnostics (USD) offers a set of automatic calculations which help to interprete the observed images.
|Type of Examination||Used Measurements||Provided Calculations|
|Obstetrics||The date of the first day of the last period.
Internal diameter of the ovum (IDO).
Coccygeal-parietal dimensions (CPD).
Biparietal dimensions (BD).
Mean diameter of the abdominal cavity (MDAC).
Length of circumference of the fetus’s abdominal cavity section.
Mean diameter of the chest (MDCh).
ÄThigh length (ThL).
Shin length (ShL).
Humerus length (HL).
Forearm length (FL).
Placenta thickness (Pth)
|The supposed date of birth.
ÑPregnancy duration by last menstruation.
Pregnancy duration estimation by:
Fetus’s length (height).
The standards on the ground of which the software estimates pregnancy terms, are changeable. It is caused by the fact that according to some investigations the norms of fetus's development can vary depending on the region. If you have checked by experience regional standards, which do not coinside with factory settings, you should correct the special table:
It is enough to correct the values once for the program to use new values in future. Using a convenient calendar you can introduce the date of the first day of last menstruation. It will help to match the accounting standards eith objective data, to reveal the abnormalities in fetus's development.
In scanning mode the management is carried out mainly with the help of a treckball.
The modern unit for ultrasound examination is known to have a number of settings, the condition of which utimately results in the image quality. The switch from one type of examination to another requires change in settings, which is sometimes essential SonoFly-3000 unit for ultrasound examination (US) allows application of both factory and user's SCHEMES OF SETTINGS. Therefore, the choice of the whole complex of settings for gynecology is not difficult:
While scanning you can save up to 10 US images per one session. The markers, set on the image, measurements results, necessary official information will be also saved on the image.
Conclusion (examination report) is formed by SonoFly-3000 Ultrasound Unit automatically after the scanning session is completed. The examination report is a text document, which automatically includes:
- Name of the medical (diagnostical) establishment.
- Information about the patient (Name, sex, age, etc.).
- Date of examination.
- Results of measurements and calculations.
- Mask of the conclusion text, which consists of standard cliches.
To include the results of measurements and calculations to the text during the formation of an examination report you should introduce them into special memory of SonoFly-3000 Ultrasound Unit while scanning. The succession of actions is given on the pictures below:
In the beginning of the examination session (early terms):
2. Fixation of the measurements results in the report
3. Observation of the calculations results
After the whole complex of measurements, provided by SonoFly - 3000, is completed (late terms):
All actions are carried out with the help of treckball, take minimum of time and do not require hand typing of numbers or a text. Such approach reduces the amount of mistakes while typing, allows to reduce the time of examination, as well as the time to prepare the report.
The examination report, formed by the program, will look approximately like this:
Ultrasound Examination Report.
Conclusion: Pregnancy period is 30 weeks. Hazard of premature birth.
