Gestational Trophoblastic Disease
The domiant structure seen within the embryonic cranium within the first trimester is that of the ______ which fills the lateral ventricles that it turn fill the cranial vault.
_______ of the cranial vault is not complete in the first trimester; the resulting false cranial border definition may give the rise to a faulse-negative diagnosis.
An abnormality that may be seen near the end if the first trimester when there is absence of cranium superior to the orbits with preservation of the base of the skull and facial features with the brain projected from the open cranial vault is _____
In________ the choriod plexus is shown to be "dangling" in the dilated dependent lateral ventricle

One of the most common abnormalities seen sonographically in the first trimester is _______.
A potential Diagnostic pitfall for the sonographer is misinterpreting the hypoechoic or sonolucent embryonic skin surface in the region of the posterior neck. This has been described as the _________ sign and should not be confused with cystic hygroma, encephalocele,cervicle meningomyelocele, teratoma, or hemangioma

The most important finding when scanning for ectopic pregnancy is to determine if there is a normal intrauterine gestation (thus ruling out the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy) or if the uterine cavity is _______ and adnexal ____ is present.
As many as 20% of patients with ectopic pegnancy demonstrate an intrauterine saclike structure known as the _______.
Cornual Pregnancy, or _____ is potentially the most life threatening of all ectopic gestations.
Embryonic cardiac rates of less than _____ beats per minute at any gestational age within the first trimester have been shown to be a poor prognostic finding
The most common occurence of bleeding in the first trimester is from _________ hemorraghe.
Characteristics for the sonographic diagnosis of _____ abortion consist of an empty uterus with no adnexal masses or free fluid and positive hCG levels.
Several sonographic findings may be shown with______ abortion, ranging from an intact gestational sac with a nonliving embryo to a collapsed gestational sac that is grossly misshapen

In the above condition, the serum levels of beta-hCG are dramatically_______, often greater than 100,000 IU/mL.
The characteristics_________ appearance of hydatidiform mole, which includes a moderately echogenic soft tissue mass filling the uterine cavity and studded with small cystic spaces representing hydropic chorionic villi, may be seen on ultrasound.
