Ultrasound

Introduction
An ultrasound, also called a sonogram, is an imaging test that is used to create pictures of internal organs and structures. Ultrasound may be used to examine a woman’s reproductive organs, including the uterus, ovaries, cervix, and vagina. An obstetric ultrasound is used to monitor a pregnancy. A transvaginal ultrasound uses a transmitting device that is placed in the vagina to provide detailed images.

This type of ultrasound is used to provide images of your reproductive organs and structures. It can help your doctor diagnose the cause of pain, abnormal bleeding, menstrual problems, and infertility. It can show the lining of the uterus, ovarian cysts, ovarian tumors, cancer, pelvic infections, and uterine fibroids.

During pregnancy, an ultrasound may be used to monitor fetal growth and the pelvic organs. An ultrasound may show a baby’s heart beat or sex. It may be used to check for Down’s Syndrome or other fetal developmental abnormalities. An ultrasound is useful for diagnosing a multiple pregnancy, miscarriages, placenta problems, tumors, and ectopic pregnancy - an abnormal pregnancy that implants outside of the uterus.

If your doctor performs your ultrasound, your results may be discussed at the time of your test. A radiology technician may perform your test, but is not qualified to diagnose or discuss your results with you. In this case, a radiologist or your doctor will review your images shortly after your test. Your doctor will contact you with the results.

In our office almost all of the ultrasound including obstetrics, vaginal and also pelvic ultrasound are done in same office visit with no hassle for extra trip for you.
