Though Tila went for a doctor's visit on the 8th of January, it took her until today to release a picture of the sonogram to prove she was "100% confirmed" pregnant in her first trimester (whatever that is).
She tried to sell the sonogram picture to TMZ, but went ahead with ol' trusty, Radar Online.
One of the highlights from the accompanying interview is when Tila claims "doubters can be assured it's her actual ultrasound photo because the first two letters of her last name are seen on the upper left hand corner of the photo, which is customary in many ultrasound photos."
Let us take a minute to look over the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine's practice guidelines for the documentation of ultrasounds.
Adequate documentation is essential for high-quality patient care. There should be a permanent record of the ultrasound examination and its interpretation. Images of all appropriate areas, both normal and abnormal, should be recorded. Variations from normal size should be accompanied by measurements. Images should be labeled with the patient identification, facility identification, examination date, and side (right or left) of the anatomic site imaged. An official interpretation (final report) of the ultrasound findings should be included in the patient’s medical record. Retention of the ultrasound examination should be consistent both with clinical needs and with relevant legal and local health care facility requirements.
Medical records require the legal name of a patient.
There is also no explanation for the reflection in the picture of the sonogram, which looks to have been taken off of a screen. If Tila is providing this picture to prove she is pregnant, why not take a better picture? Why cut out the date the sonogram was taken?
Now let us try to figure out a time line. Tila visited the doctor on the 8th of January. The picture of the sonogram is of a gestational sac at or around six weeks. That would put conception around the last week of November. Not only was this weeks before Tila said she was starting the in vitro fertilization process to be a surrogate for her brother, but this is also before she met Casey.
Back to the Radar Online article. Tila says, "This baby was planned. This baby, which I am currently carrying, was for Casey and I to start our family together."
A baby that was conceived before Tila met Casey was planned for Casey?
