Your present USG shows malformed/defective embryo similar to anemryonic gestation (Blighted Ovum).
Need to do D & C to complete evacuate uterine conceptional products. So consult with your doctor to take suggestive measures as applicable.
Next time plan pregnancy with Folic acid & Vit-E supplements for at least 3 months in pre conceptional period.Do some basic investigation like Blood gr & Rh both of you,TORCH profile,Thyroid profile etc.
Maintain genital hygiene properly,take healthy diet,avoid stress.
Be well.

Thanks for your query.
A fetal pole with no heartbeat definitely indicates a missed abortion.
In an anembryonic pregnancy, a fetal pole is never formed - just an empty gestational sac without a fetal pole is found.
In your case, there is a fetal pole, but no cardiac activity.
Hence this is a missed abortion, where the heartbeat failed to develop.
Your doctor is absolutely right, as there is no point retaining the dead fetus inside the uterus.
Please go for a D and C as advised.
take care.
