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
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
If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?
Of What?: Of a tight, intact hymen? Yes it can. The vagina? If the examiner suddenly thought she or he was churning butter, or had a severe seizure during the exam then it might happen but I never saw such an occurrence. ...Read more
Different probe: Pelvic ultrasound can be performed over the lower abdomen. However, there is also a vaginal "probe" which can be inserted into the outer vagina (about an inch). It is smaller than the regular ultrasound transducer/scanner. This allows for much better imaging of the female pelvis (uterus/ovaries). It is very commonly done; it should not be painful. ...Read more
Yes: Regular ultrasound has a bigger "field of view" so may better see ovaries that are positioned higher or things that are near, but outside of uterus and ovaries. Transvag us usually obtains a more detailed view of uterus and ovaries, which is why both are usually performed together. ...Read more
Venous: It usually means that the veins in the pelvis are full or "backed up." this can result in pain, a condition called pelvic congestion syndrome which is treated in interventional radiology. ...Read more
Probably not: 22y female asks if endometriosis, EM, is detectable by "transvaginal ultrasound". Since EM is a theoretical clinical disease in search of a diagnostic benchmark, the answer is "probably no". Let's see what the experts have to say. Pathologists I have spoken to have not confirmed that tissue diagnosis is definitive. Be wary of invasive procedures which incite adhesions & "EM" & IBS-like symptoms. ...Read more
Doppler: Images of the blood moving in your arteries and veins. ...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
An ultrasound is an imaging study in which a probe emits and receives sound waves which rebound off of internal organs in order to visualize them. For a transvaginal ultrasound a specially designed probe is lubricated and placed into the vagina in order to better ...Read more
