Pelvic Ultrasound

A pelvic ultrasound produces images that can be used to assess organs and structures within the pelvis.

This included the uterus, endometrium, ovaries, and adnexa. (Transvaginal as required).

Preparation


*Full bladder required*

Please drink 3 - 4 glasses of water 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to your ultrasound appointment. If possible, avoid using the restroom until your sonographer advises, or until your appointment has ended. 

We realize this may be uncomfortable - every effort will be made to complete your exam in a timely manner.

Transvaginal Ultrasound


In some instances an endovaginal ultrasound may be required in order to properly document the female pelvic anatomy. Your doctor may request this type of exam initially, or the technologist/radiologist may suggest performing this procedure if it is deemed necessary.

If an endovaginal exam is required, you will be asked to empty your bladder and a specialized transducer will be inserted a short distance into the vagina, additional images will be acquired utilizing this method.

(You always reserve the right to refuse this procedure)
