We Perform Several Types of Pelvic Ultrasound
Transvaginal Pelvic Ultrasound
- The transducer on a transvaginal ultrasound is a long probe that is inserted into the vagina; it is covered with lubricant and a condom for your comfort and safety.
- Our expert physicians and our nurse ultrasonographers will be able to see the uterus, ovaries, follicles and possible abnormalities in the pelvis.
Three Dimensional (3D) Pelvic Ultrasound
- Used for optimal assessment of uterine architecture.
- There are no x-rays involved.
Abdominal Pelvic Ultrasound
- Your bladder must be full.
- Needed to confirm proper placement of catheters in the uterine cavity prior to embryo transfer and/or intrauterine insemination.
Obstetrical Pelvic Ultrasound
- The most exciting ultrasound, of course, is confirming good progress in early pregnancy with normal embryo location, number, size and heart rate.
- Our physicians perform an obstetrical transvaginal pelvic ultrasound at 6-7 weeks gestation and at 9-10 weeks gestation, after which you graduate to your obstetrician for the remainder of your pregnancy and delivery.
- Our team usually gives ultrasound photos and video for you to share with family and friends.
Pelvic ultrasound is an essential tool used by our expert physicians and nurses to care for you in the most comprehensive, caring and effective way. Of course, the ultrasound we love most of all is the one at 9-10 weeks into your pregnancy where we see and hear a great heart beat, arms and legs moving and discover you graduate from our care to your obstetrician’s for the remainder of your 9-month journey welcoming your newest family member into the world. We also love baby visits!
