Is Transvaginal Ultrasound More Accurate Than A Pelvic Ultrasound
Nearly same...: There are two ways to image the pelvic organs. One is by transabdominal route (transducer in placed on the skin of lower abdomen with a distended urinary bladder); and the other is transvaginal ultrasound where the transducer is placed inside the vagina to assess pelvic organs. Transvaginal ultrasound means just that; whereas, pelvic ultrasound includes both transabdominal and transvaginal US. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Normal variation: The position of the ovaries varies quite a bit from women to women within the pelvis. Secondly, gas within adjacent bowel loops will distort ultrasound images and 'hide' anything behind that loop. Thus looking from a different angle ie transvaginally, we can find the ovaries that we can see on the transabdominal portion of a scan. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Can a transvaginal ultrasound and/or pelvic ultrasound show enlarged lymph nodes around the ovary?
Yes,: but not reliably. Regional bowel gas can obscure pelvic lymph nodes. Also the position of the ovaries is variable, and they may not be situated next to internal iliac nodal chains. So not seeing enlarged lymph nodes on a pelvic sonogram is not sufficient to exclude them. CT or MRI is much better. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I took a pelvic ultrasound and also a transvaginal ultrasound they both picked up a right adnexal cyst and i missed my period could the be a pregnancy?

If negative, it may be a simple ovarian cyst that will resolve on its own without any problems. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Is a pelvic ultrasound as good as a transvaginal u/s at measuring size of ovaries? Are they both accurate?
Possibly equal: It really all depends on how well the ovaries are seen. If the bladder is full and the ovaries are well demonstrated transabdominally then measurements will be as accurate. Transvaginal ultrasound usually provides a more detailed look at the ovaries because the transducer is right next to them. However, sometimes the ovaries are hard to find transvaginally. Each patient is different. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
No: A transvaginal ultrasound is done by inserting an ultrasound probe into the vagina to better evaluate the pelvic organs. Lubrication is applied to the top of the probe to ease insertion. An ultrasound should not be painful. Some women describe a "pressure" sensation but pain should not be experienced. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
