Click 36 year old pregnant female at 20 weeks gestation with ruptured uterine artery.
Findings: Initial transabdominal ultrasound demonstrates a live intrauterine gestation with normal fetal heart tones at 150 bpm and a normal homogenous placenta.
Technique: Standard transabdominal ultrasound with gray scale and color doppler, 5-1MHz curved array C5-1 transducer
