Transvaginal Scan

Transvaginal ultrasound is a imaging technique used to create a picture of the genital tract in women. The hand-held device that produces the ultrasound waves is inserted directly into the vagina, close to the pelvic structures, thus often producing a clearer and less distorted image than obtained through trans abdominal ultrasound technology, where the probe is located externally on the skin of the abdomen

Types of conditions or abnormalities that can be examined include:

  • The endometrium of women with infertility problems or who are experiencing abnormal bleeding

  • Sources of unexplained pain

  • Congenital malformations of the ovaries and uterus

  • Ovarian cysts and tumors

  • Pelvic infections, such as pelvic inflammatory disease

  • Bladder abnormalities

  • A misplaced IUD (intrauterine device)

  • Other causes of infertility

  • During pregnancy to evaluate fetal heartbeat, and abnormalities of the uterus, placenta, and associated pelvic structures
