May 29, 2023

What is Pelvic Ultrasound?

A pelvic ultrasound is needed to check the internal organs of the female body, such as the urinary bladder, the urethra, the ovaries, the uterus and the fallopian tube. This diagnostic test is used to check the soft tissues of the body.

Why is it required?

To check the structure of the ovaries.

To check for any fluid deposition or accumulation in the pelvic region.

To check for any soft tissue abnormalities.

To check if all the structures are of the correct size and shape.

Presence of any abnormalities or diseases such as cysts, tumours, follicles, etc.

Types of ultrasounds

Trans-abdominal - In this type of ultrasound, the images are obtained from over the abdomen.

Trans- vaginal - For a trans-vaginal ultrasound, the transducer or imaging rod is placed inside the vagina to obtain an image from the inside.

A pelvic ultrasound is non-invasive and very safe for the patient, as compared to the other diagnostic tools. It is not at all painful, unless the area is highly tender and hurts even on touching. The patient often feels a tingling or a ticklish feeling, due to the ultrasound gel which feels cold on the skin.

Why You May Need A Pelvic UltraSound?

A pelvic ultrasound is essential if you are suffering from any lower abdominal pain, urinary problems or menstrual problems. This test helps the doctor to analyse the health of your internal organs and confirm their diagnosis.
