Keywords:  gestation, ultrasound, hcg, sac, fetal
A pregnancy in which the beating fetal heart has been identified by ultrasound.
A pregnancy that has been confirmed by ultrasonic examination or through pathologic assessment of a surgical specimen obtained either from a miscarriage or from an ectopic pregnancy.

A pregnancy verified not only by a blood test, but an ultrasound visualization of a gestational sac.
