I’m a few hours early this week because I knew exactly what I was going to post for this theme.
‘Tiny’ can mean many things to a radiologist. But the most beautiful tiny thing that I see routinely in my practice is this…
The transvaginal scan image shows a 6-week-old embryo which measures about 6 mm (about 2 eighths of an inch).
By the sixth week an embryo is usually more than 5 mm in length (which is described as CRL, standing for Crown-to-Rump Length) and shows definite cardiac pulsations, proving that it is a viable pregnancy.
This 6 mm blob of greyness will grow over the ensuing weeks to emerge as someone’s darling child.
Note: I’ll be out of town for the weekend. So I may not be able to visit other blogs or respond to comments here.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
