Transvaginal Ultrasound

Utilizing a small, wand-like transducer inserted into the vagina, this procedure provides high-resolution images of the uterus, ovaries, and surrounding tissues. It plays a vital role in diagnosing gynecological conditions such as ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, and pelvic inflammatory disease, and assists in monitoring pregnancies, evaluating fertility issues, and guiding certain medical procedures.

What are the Benefits of Transvaginal Ultrasound?

  • Transvaginal Ultrasound offers high-resolution images of pelvic organs, providing detailed insights into the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix and surrounding structures.
  • This imaging technique is minimally invasive, as the transducer is gently inserted into the vagina. It is well-tolerated by most patients and does not require anesthesia.
  • Can detect early signs of gynecological conditions such as ovarian cysts, polyps, uterine fibroids, and endometrial abnormalities, facilitating timely intervention and management.
  • For expectant mothers, transvaginal ultrasound provides accurate and real-time monitoring of early pregnancies, allowing healthcare providers to track fetal growth and development.
  • Assists in assessing the ovaries’ follicle development, uterine lining, and overall pelvic health, aiding in the diagnosis and management of fertility concerns.
  • The procedure is well-tolerated, as it eliminates the need for uncomfortable external pressure or compression.
  • Provides clearer images, increasing the chances of detecting subtle abnormalities that may be missed by other imaging methods.
