    Default question about scans???

    I just had a scan at 34 weeks to double check size of bub due to gestational diabetes they dr wasn't concerned just being cautious.
    any my question is I know the person doing the ultrasound can't tell you what they find but if something was wrong they would get a second opinion or something wouldn't they? cause she just said a report will get sent to my dr and then sent me home
    should I just assume that everything is ok??

    I'm not 100% sure but during my 34 week scan, I asked the tech if everything looked ok and if there was anything I should be concerned about. She told me exactly what she had found.

    Did you ask the tech during the scan?

    It is normal to send the results to the doctor as most of it is medical terms that not all of us would understand plus he would have asked for specific things like measurements or anything else he wanted them to look at so then he needs the results. All of mine were done this way.

    She would have gone to see the reporting Radiologist to confirm anything if she had any concerns. They are not allowed to give you any information as they aren't Rads. Sometimes Radiology companys have days where they send films off site for reporting, and if that's the case and they find something they are really worried with they will call the Rad at the reporting site and ask them to look at the films and rush a report.

    best thing to do would be to wait at least 4-5 hours to allow time for a report to be done and call the company you had the scan done at and ask for them to fax the report to your gp or who ever you're seeing as soon as it's done and call that practice.
