A Pelvic Ultrasound Scan

A quick, non-invasive scan.

A pelvic ultrasound scan images the organs of the female pelvis including the uterus, (endometrial lining), ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the surrounding adnexal region, as well as the kidneys.

It is a quick, non-invasive way of confirming or excluding certain pathology in relation to the pelvic organs.

We perform transvaginal scans for those who are seeking this examination as it is superior to transabdominal scanning, however both types are utilized and the kidneys are looked at.

This scan examines:

The Uterus

The Endometrium

The Ovaries

The Kidneys

The Cervix

Typical reasons exam is sought: 

Rule Out Fibroids

Rule Out Endometrial Thickness

Rule Out Ovarian Cysts

Postmenopausal bleeding

Rule Out Endometriosis

Rule Out PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome

Rule Out Correct Location of Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUD)

Transabdominal gynaecology scan (on top) requires a full bladder.

Transvaginal gynaecology scan (internal) the bladder should be empty.

How long does a pelvic ultrasound examination last?

The examination lasts approximately 20 minutes.

What to expect from a pelvic ultrasound

Ultrasound gel is placed on the patient’s abdomen and the pelvic region is scanned to see your reproductive organs with an Ultrasound probe.

All pelvic scans are performed both transabdominally and transvaginally (only when patient has been sexually active).

The transvaginal probe is covered with a Sterilized sheath (probe cover) and is inserted into the vagina slightly to obtain images of the uterus and ovaries.

This should take no longer than 5 minutes to perform.

Why would a woman need or want an ultrasound?

A gynaecological ultrasound is used to see the presence and position of reproductive organs. It also rules out the presence of ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, possible blockages of the fallopian tubes / presence of pelvic inflammatory disease, post-menopausal endometrial thickness, signs of endometriosis as well as overall irregularities of the uterus.

Ultrasound can also be used when experiencing infertility issues, infertility scan confirms if you ovulate normally, if your ovaries have the appearance of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or if the uterus / fallopian tubes has an irregularity that can contribute to you not conceiving. Aside from helping to detect reproductive issues, ultrasounds are useful in establishing if an IUD is correctly placed or has moved, which is very common. 3D ultrasound is used to assist in some of the above scenarios.
