Pelvic Ultrasound Examination
A pelvic ultrasound examination is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that is used to identify a variety of conditions in the pelvic area. We look at the type of conditions it is used to identify.
- Endometrial Lining;
- Ovaries and
- Pelvic area.
It is useful in diagnosis of conditions like fibroids, polyps, ovarian cysts, polycystic ovaries, fertility assessment and checking ovulation. It is also used for assessment of endometrial lining and follicle tracking in relation to IVF or clomiphene cycles.
It is also performed trans-vaginally (unless there is contra-indication for this route), where a probe is inserted into the vagina in order to gain clear images of the inside structures of the vagina.
If you can have a transvaginal scan, you will be asked to empty your bladder before starting. If, however, you cannot have a transvaginal scan, you will need to have a full bladder for better images through the abdomen.
After the scan the images will be examined further and a report on the findings will be passed to your Doctor.
