Because they can switch the image any which way they want to with just a button push, and you would be none the wiser. But esp in early dating scans, they have no reason to switch, really.

The theory that Transabdominal is true left/right and transabdominal is "mirror" is one of those internet falsities floating around.
That makes sense! I did read that on some machines, the techs can switch from a "true view" to a "mirror view" on machines, so you may not know unless you ask which is which.

Just when I thought I had all this Ramzi stuff figured out! Ha, ha!
