Can transvaginal ultrasound be performed on a virgin woman?

In brief: 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.
