We understand that the thought of undergoing a pelvic ultrasound scan can be daunting, especially if you have never had one. However, there is nothing to worry about as it is a safe and non-invasive procedure. To help you prepare for your pelvic ultrasound scan, we have put together these points to ensure a stress-free and comfortable experience.
Before your appointment, drink plenty of water to conduct the ultrasound accurately. We recommend drinking at least six to eight glasses of water two hours before the procedure.
You will be required to remove your pants and underwear for the procedure. We suggest wearing loose and comfortable clothing that is easy to take off and put back on. You have to wear a gown during the examination.
When you arrive for your appointment, we will request that you empty your bladder before the procedure.
You must lie on your back on an examination table with your feet in stirrups. It may feel uncomfortable, but it is essential to relax and breathe normally. The technician will apply a warm gel to your abdomen and insert a transducer to capture images of your reproductive organs.
After your pelvic ultrasound scan, the technician will analyse the images and provide a report to your healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider will discuss the results and provide necessary treatment options.
Pelvic ultrasound scanning is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the organs and structures in the pelvic region. The images produced by the pelvic ultrasound can help our doctors to diagnose conditions such as fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis and uterine abnormalities.
Our doctor will ask you to lie down on an examination table. They apply a gel to your abdomen or vagina. This gel helps to transmit sound waves and obtain clear images. The doctor then moves a small transducer over your belly or inserts it into your vagina. The transducer emits sound waves that bounce back off the organs and structures in your pelvic region. These sound waves are converted into images helping our doctors to interpret and use them to diagnose potential health conditions.
The sound waves emitted by the transducer during a pelvic ultrasound scan are not audible to the human ear. They penetrate the skin and bounce back off the organs and structures in your pelvic region, creating a pattern of echoes. The transducer detects these echoes and sends them to a computer, which processes the information and creates images of your pelvic organs and structures. The images produced by a pelvic ultrasound scan can help our doctors to identify abnormalities, like cysts or fibroids.
The pelvic ultrasound scan results offer comprehensive details about your health. Your doctor will review your pelvic organs for irregularities such as ovarian cysts, fibroids and polyps. The scan can also determine the thickness of your uterine lining, the size of your ovaries and the amount of fluid in your pelvis.
Your doctor may be able to diagnose a range of conditions based on the results of your pelvic ultrasound scan. For example, If the scan reveals a thickening of your uterine lining, your doctor may suspect endometrial hyperplasia or cancer.
