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
Maybe: It depends upon where the soft tissue mass is. Transvaginal or pelvic ultrasound is great for evaluating the uterus, ovaries, bladder, and even the appendix (when it's inflamed). But it's not a great modality to evaluate intestinal, muscle, or fat masses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just had a transvaginal ultrasound that said that there was a "5mm hyperechoic endometrial mass". Is there any chance this is a decidual reaction?
Sonohystogram: If an endometrial mass was seen on transvaginal sonogram this is typically followed up with another test that allows visualization of the area. A specialized sonogram called a sonohystogram is a simple next step. Some doctors can look at the area in question with a camera called a hysteroscope. Endometrial polyps or submucosal fibroids are the most likely cause ...Read more
Can I have a uterine mass and it not be detected at all by ultrasound transvaginal ultrasound Cray or ct scan?
I had a transvaginal ultrasound that showed a 6cm mass in lower uterus near cervix. It states that the mass is atypical of fibroid. Whats this mean?
Transvaginal Ultrasound 5mm mass, no bloodflow. 1.1cm endometrium; 1.5cm probable hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Should I worry? Very heavy menses, IV Fe.
Sono not worrisome: The findings on your transvaginal sonogram do not seem to be cause for alarm but unfortunately they do not explain why you have "very heavy menses" and need IV Fe...which are "causes to worry". It would be good to consult a hematologist to rule out a blood coagulation disorder and a Reproductive Endocrinologist to find out why you may or may not be ovulating regularly and why you bleed heavily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
It depends: Transvag us exam is an excellent tool to examine pelvic and lower abdonimal organs. Depends on the target of interest (ovary, appendix...) and the disease being investigated (mass, abscess...) it can at times be uncomfortable. Don't be afraid of the instrument. If you use tampon, you can handle the probe. ...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
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
