Will an ultrasound scan date be accurate enough to determine who the father is if you have slept with 2 different men within a month?

No. The only way to be absolutely certain of who the father is, is a paternity test. Most people still choose the standard blood test. DNA testing is 99.9% conclusive, but is more costly. Ultrasound only indicates the growth and health of the fetus. A calculated guess can be made on the "age" but definitely not the paternity.

If the radiologist is competant enough, ultrasound can be 99% accurate.

they normally wait until 20 weeks, so I don't know how accurate it would be at 17 weeks. I would suggest getting another scan at 25 weeks if you get one at 17 weeks

Obviously, that depends on your standard of accuracy. The sextant is accurate enough to allow you to navigate from where you are to where you want to be. It may not be as accurate at GPS, but it is accurate enough for its intended purpose.

Everyone's bodies metabolize alcohol at a different rate. It is not accurate enough to determine how long ago you had a drink, or how many drinks you had. It can only tell how much alcohol you currently have in your system.
