Better vision: Transvaginal approach gets the ultrasound probe closer to the uterus and ovaries (especially in larger women), improving the quality of the image and the ability to detect abnormalities. It is preferred by most gynecologists for evaluation of the uterine lining (eg, with abnormal bleeding) and also for early pregnancy.
