A review of first-trimester ultrasound findings is presented. The normal first trimester, including practical embryology and pregnancy dating, is first discussed. Abnormal first-trimester findings, including sonographic evaluation of the failing pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, gestational trophoblastic disease, and first-trimester cystic hygroma, are then stressed. This report reviews the spectrum of findings encountered by sonographers while evaluating early pregnancy.
