Ultrasound What is ultrasound?
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to visualize organs and structures inside your body. While one type of ultrasound, called Doppler ultrasound, can measure blood flow, a regular ultrasound passes through fluid but bounces off denser surfaces. As the sound waves are reflected, they send information back to a computer, which interprets the waves and produces a detailed image of the targeted organ. An ultrasound may be done transabdominally or transvaginally. In a transabdominal ultrasound, the device that sends out the sound waves, the transducer, is moved across the abdomen, sending sound waves down toward the uterus. During a transvaginal ultrasound, a long, narrow transducer is placed inside the vagina, with the sound waves directed up toward the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and bladder.
What gynecological conditions can be detected with ultrasound?
Ultrasound is invaluable for diagnosing health problems with your reproductive organs. The detailed images of your uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, and cervix give Dr. Saunders the precise information she needs to determine the underlying cause of pelvic pain and heavy, painful, or abnormal menstrual or vaginal bleeding. Some of the most common conditions that are diagnosed with ultrasound include:
Endometrioma (Endometriosis tumors)
Uterine fibroid or tumors
Ultrasound is also used to visualize an IUD to be sure it’s properly placed.
