Characteristics of the Doppler technology illustrated below include all EXCEPT which of the following?

++
++
++
++

a. Scaling of color

++
++

b. More sensitive to low flow velocities

++
++

c. Directionality of blood flow with dual colors

++
++

d. Quantitative measurement of impedance to red blood cell velocity

Which of the following statements is true when performing saline infusion sonography?

++
++
++

a. SIS is best performed within the first 10 days of the menstrual cycle.

++
++

b. Touching the uterine fundus when advancing the catheter should be avoided as it can cause pain and false-positive results.

++
++

c. The uterine isthmus and endocervical canal should be evaluated as the catheter is withdrawn under sonographic visualization.

++
++

d. All of the above
