GYNECOLOGICAL & INFERTILTIY 

Pelvic Sonogram

A pelvic ultrasound allows visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures including the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries and allows the blood flow through the pelvic organs to be evaluated.

Pelvic ultrasound may be performed using one or both of 2 methods:

  • Transabdominal (through the abdomen). A transducer is placed on the abdomen using the conductive gel

  • Transvaginal (through the vagina). A long, thin transducer is covered with the conducting gel and a plastic/latex sheath and is inserted into the vagina

The type of ultrasound procedure performed depends on the reason for the ultrasound.

A pelvic ultrasound may be used to diagnose and assist in the treatment of conditions such as:

  • Pelvic pain

  • Abnormal periods

  • Postmenopausal bleeding

  • Presence and position of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)

  • Monitoring of ovarian follicle size for infertility evaluation​

  • Fibroid tumors

  • Pelvic infections

  • Ovarian cancer screening
