Pelvic Ultrasound - Philips IU22 plus a TV screen to view your baby and the ability to burn a CD

A pelvic ultrasound is performed through the abdomen (transabdominal scan) whilst the patient has a full bladder, and provides a broad perspective of the organs in the pelvis.

A further scan through the vagina (transvaginal scan) using a transducer (slender probe) can provide significantly more detailed images. Your consent will be required prior to performing this scan.

What are some of the reasons for performing a pelvic ultrasound scan?

  • Pelvic pain
  • Review of a mass palpated during a pelvic examination
  • Evaluation of the ovaries
  • Evaluation of the uterus and endometrium (lining of the womb) for endometriosis
  • Assessment of uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Prolapse
  • Incontinence
