The Application of Stork's Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

With the continuous development of the medical level, ultrasound in the past half-century has also been improved significantly. From the previous gray, black, and white imaging to the current color imaging technology, from the traditional A-type ultrasound, M-type ultrasound to two-dimensional ultrasound, three-dimensional ultrasound, and four-dimensional ultrasound (real-time three-dimensional imaging technology), all of these embodied the development of ultrasound. Ultrasonography is of great clinical significance and can provide reliable data support for diagnosing diseases. In recent years, ultrasound examination has also been widely used in gynecology and obstetrics and has become a necessary means for diagnosing gynecological diseases and maternity examinations. Because ultrasound examination is safe and non-invasive, the operation is relatively simple, and the results are obvious, it has become an indispensable device for clinical diagnosis.

1. Application of Stork ultrasound in gynaecology

1.1 Diagnostic role of Stork ultrasound in gynaecology

Ultrasound examination can help doctors know the specific lesion area of uterine fibroids in detail. And it can also directly display the range of endometrial cancer invading the neck or the invasion of the myometrium and can make a judgment about whether endometrial cancer is benign. Like three-dimensional ultrasound imaging, the accuracy of detecting uterine malformations can reach 100%. Although two-dimensional ultrasound can also diagnose uterine malformations, it is still difficult to diagnose double horns and uterine longitudinals. The role of transvaginal ultrasound in diagnosing endometrial cancer is very crucial. The operation is performed according to the results of ultrasound examination, and the error is generally within 1mm. Through vaginal ultrasound examination, you can observe in detail whether the thickness of the endometrium is abnormal, whether the echo is uniform, whether the endometrial capsule is clear, etc., which can provide accurate digital data for clinical surgical treatment and ensure the safety of the operation.

1.2 Application of the measurement function of Stork ultrasound examination

Ultrasound can also measure volume. For patients with fibroids, doctors can use three-dimensional ultrasound to check. With ultrasound, doctors can measure the size of uterine fibroids and the size of endometrial polyps, and then provide powerful information support for subsequent treatment. Measuring the volume of the endometrium is clinically important. It can help distinguish whether the patient has endometrial cancer or benign lesions. Ultrasound can also accurately measure the size of the ovaries and follicles. If the patient suffers from an ovarian cyst or ovarian tumour, it can also accurately measure its volume, providing powerful data support for the patient's subsequent treatment. For patients with ovarian disease, transabdominal ultrasonography and transvaginal ultrasonography can be used. Ultrasound can observe whether the capsule of the tumour in the ovary is intact, whether the echo is uniform, whether there is a septum, etc. The doctor then refers to the RI value to determine whether the tumour is benign or malignant. Transvaginal ultrasound plays an important role in the early detection of ovarian tumours.

1.3 Role of hysterography and Stork color doppler ultrasound examination

In addition, the types of ultrasound are also divided into hysterography and color doppler imaging. Hysterography is very helpful in diagnosing uterine malformations and endometrial polyps, while Doppler ultrasound technology can clearly distinguish uterine muscles. The vascular structure of the tumor can be analyzed and imaged. If the tumor is malignant, the blood flow of the uterine artery is much higher than the normal arterial blood flow, and the blood flow in the tumor is relatively rich and benign. Compared with tumors, there are completely inconsistent manifestations, so ultrasound can provide a corresponding diagnostic basis for the clinical diagnosis of the nature of patients with uterine fibroids.

2. Application of Stork's ultrasound in obstetrics

2.1 Screening effect of Stork ultrasound on the fetus

In obstetrics, the application of ultrasound technology is also very extensive. Ultrasound can thoroughly check the development of the fetus in the mother's body. Ultrasound can determine whether it is a single birth or multiple births in time, and it can also detect the fetal heart rate of the fetus. Using ultrasound, doctors can check the embryos of abortion and a hydatidiform mole in time. And then doctors can terminate the pregnancy in time to protect the life of the pregnant woman. Generally, the fetus can be checked for malformation when the fetus is around 10W. The use of three-dimensional ultrasound in the deformity inspection can completely show the appearance and internal organs of the fetus. It can be screened for children with defects in appearance and children with underdeveloped internal organs, which is of great significance for high-quality fertility. The use of three-dimensional ultrasound in the first trimester can detect the presence of conjoined fetuses, and make corresponding judgments about its degree and type. The use of ultrasound can also make corresponding judgments on the growth of the fetus, including the fetus's limbs, double parietal diameter, and bone development, and the development of the spine.

In the third trimester of pregnancy, the use of ultrasound is the best way to monitor the growth of the fetus. It can understand the conditions of fetal overgrowth and developmental delay in time. At the same time, it can check the maturity level of the placenta, the position of the placenta, the depth of amniotic fluid, and fetal activities in detail. Especially when the parturient is about to give birth, ultrasound can accurately determine the position of the fetus, the size of the fetal limbs and double parietal diameter, the weight of the fetus, the maturity of the official neck, and the degree of opening, etc. At present, ultrasound is used as a crucial examination method for the whole pregnancy examination. After the birth, doctors can use ultrasound to observe the adhesion of the placenta of the parturient, the recovery of the uterus and the healing of the wound.

2.2 Application value of Stork interventional ultrasound in obstetrics

In addition, in obstetrics, interventional ultrasound is also very extensive. In the first trimester, interventional ultrasound can reduce multiple births. For pregnant women with oligohydramnios, normal saline can also be perfused. For the case that umbilical cord blood is required for examination, the examination can be conducted under the guidance of interventional ultrasound. Obstetric ultrasound equipment can diagnose the congenital diseases of the fetus in the mother's body, reduce the mortality of the fetus, and achieve the purpose of prenatal and postnatal care. 

3. Application of Stork ultrasound in reproductive and gynaecological urology

The ultrasonic examination can observe the maturation and development of follicles, and at the same time make a diagnosis of factors that affect the development of follicles. Interventional ultrasound can also be used for vaginal egg retrieval, which is completely different from traditional abdominal egg retrieval to ensure that the patients receive non-invasive operations and the success rate of egg retrieval is effectively improved. In addition, the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis of stress urinary incontinence urinary dynamics is also very helpful. It can understand the stability of the bladder neck and make a judgment on the cause of the disease.

In summary, the application of ultrasound examination in the field of obstetrics and gynecology is very extensive and necessary. Stork ultrasound examination also has the advantages of simple operation, safety and non-invasiveness, accurate clinical data, and congruent information. It has become an important inspection method in obstetrics and gynecology. Although ultrasound examinations are more accurate, clinicians are still needed. Doctors need to make a diagnosis of the patient's condition based on the ultrasound examination data and the specific situations of the patient, rather than just look at the ultrasound examination data and make a blind diagnosis.
