What Are The Blue Red Spots On A Transvaginal Ultrasound
Doppler: Images of the blood moving in your arteries and veins. ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Blood flow: What you saw was likely the appearance of blood flow within the ovaries on color doppler. This flow is usually depicted on the study with the colors of red and blue. The red generally means the flow is directed towards the transducer (device that the sonographer holds to do the exam) and blue codes for flow away from the transducer. Typically both kinds of flow are seen during the exam. ...Read more

I am 48, perimenopause, and I think I had 1 mid-cycle spot. My dr. wants a transvaginal ultrasound. Is this necessary?
Yes: Probably. If you end up having a problem with the uterus it is much better to catch it early rather than later. If that's the result of the ultrasound then you will be extremely grateful that it was done. One of the signs of a potential problem is abnormal bleeding in your age group (possibly with some other risk factors). Get it done. ...Read more
Usually blood flow: Most u/s images are not done with the 'doppler' probe turned on and are a 'black and white' image. The doppler allows the detection of movements toward or away from the probe (like blood coming into the area in an atery, or leavbing in a vein) these areas are coded red and blue by the computer processing the signal. ...Read more
Hello I wanted to know why my vaginal wall has red spots on it I'm not sure if it's from the friction after intercourse ?
Most likely: If the red spots appeared soon after vaginal intercourse, it might be due to friction to the area. If you see these persist or change in appearance like become more like bumps, these should be examined for any infection and other cysts common in vaginal region and require separate treatments. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to measure close to 3 weeks behind on transvaginal ultrasound? U/s showed fetal pole measuring 6 weeks w/ no heartbeat yet.
Transvaginal USG: Transvaginal ultrasound is most accurate duringvthe first trimester by 5-7 days. If >than 1 week off then your dating may be off because of ovulation etc. your period also plays a role in this. If your cycles are irregular then ultrasound dates may be off. Would considerva repest ultasound in a week to evaluate and see if pregnancy is progressing. Good luck. ...Read more
I had a transvaginal ultrasound on 14 sept 2012. The doctor told me I am 7 weeks 1 d. Based off of this when is my most likely date of conception?
Maybe: If the woman in question is able to insert a tampon then a low profile tv probe should be able to be inserted with gentle pressure and a lot of lubricant. I have encountered virgin women in whom i was unable to insert a probe. In such cases a trans-perineal scan is done with the probe placed on the external region of the external genitalia. A trans rectal approach is another possibility. ...Read more
See below: A transvaginal transducer is, as the name implies, designed to be inserted vaginally allowing much closer access to the uterus and ovaries. The patient is positioned similarly to a pelvic exam (though usually no stirrups). The sonographer gently positions the probe and takes pictures of the uterus and ovaries. Occasionally there may be minimal discomfort, but usually only takes a few minutes. ...Read more
Many Things...: Ultrasound is used for many things related to fertility. Initially it is used to scan for normal anatomy. Later, for example, your doc might do scan every day or so to measure the size of a follicle on your ovary. Its much easier to see your ovaries and uterus with a transvaginal ultrasound compared to an abdominal ultrasound. Its certainly my preference. Best wishes! ...Read more
