    I'm looking specifically for what is required in the chart for an ob u/s. Currently Dr. notes that u/s was done, date, crl and age. I'm thinking he really should be doing more than that. example how many sacs / fetuses, measurements for gestational age, volume of amniotic fluid, fetal location, heartbeat, location of placenta ect....But I would like something in writting to show him. perferably from ACOG. Thanks.

    What you actually need is from the ACR (American College of Radiology) and here is a link to a nice document that lays out what is needed. http://www.acr.org/Hidden/Economics/...ogyReport.aspx

    If after reviewing this document you have more questions, please contact me by email jordana@whnobgyn.com
