Gynecological Ultrasound

Back to Gynecological Services

An ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic test produced by sound waves formed into energy. These sound waves produce results that are converted into images of the internal organs or, in the case of a pregnancy, the fetus within the womb. During an ultrasound, the administrator will apply a gel to the skin of the patient, and gently move a transponder over the skin to obtain the images needed to determine the health of the internal organs.

What does this form of ultrasound examine?

Gynecological ultrasounds assess a woman’s pelvic organs, and can help a doctor diagnose problems like cancer, uterine fibroids, uterine polyps, and ovarian cysts, among other
conditions.

Are there risks associated with getting an ultrasound?

Patients generally do not feel much, if any, discomfort during this non-invasive procedure. However, based on a patient’s health or medical condition, there may be considerations that a doctor will discuss prior to the test.
