    Default Who can read an U/S image?

    So, at my scan last week, I asked the tech if there was another sac because of the dark, river shaped image in the upper left corner of the scan; close to the sac. She said "oh, no; there is only one". But, she never explained what that spot was. I googled and any fluid on an image would appear black; so that clearly has to be blood or fluid of some sort. Anyone know what it might be?

    I'll be sure to ask at my next scan on Friday, but I'm curious in the mean time. The image would disappear and then reappear depending on the angle of the u/s doppler. So, I'm not sure if I called the doctor now if they would have a copy of the image with the spot.

    By no means am i good at ultrasound stuff, and maybe it is just artifact. But, i know those subchorionic hemorrhages are common and associated with small spotting. They say they usually resolve and are harmless, but if that is what it is, maybe that would be an explanation of what the free fluid is.
    Just a rough stab in the dark.... Sorry.

    That would be my best guess too, but also a guess. You could ask the doctor if you could email the image for them to look at and explain to you.

    I had the same thing (I also had/have spotting) its subchorionic hemmorage. They usually heal themselves by 20 weeks. It's pretty common.
