Transvaginal Ultrasound Scan
Transvaginal ultrasound scan is a pelvic screening procedure, which is used for a thorough examination of a woman's reproductive organs, including the uterus, ovaries, cervix and vagina. A transvaginal ultrasound scan has two stages. First, a normal scan is performed by running a probe over a patient’s pelvis. Then, a small thin probe is inserted into the vagina to perform the transvaginal scan.
During the procedure, the patient lies down on a table with her knees bent and feet in the holders called stirrups. One of our highly skilled practitioners will then place the probe, also known as a transducer, into the patient’s vagina. The probe sends out sound waves, which reflect off the body’s structures. These waves are received by a computer and are used to generate an image. The doctor is able to see the image on the nearby TV monitor simultaneously as they are performing the exam and can easily print the pictures for further reviewing.
The inserted probe can better examine the pelvic structures than a regular ultrasound. Also, the quality of the imaging that it produces enables our practitioners to see the condition of the uterus and the ovaries a lot clearer. The transvaginal ultrasound is usually necessary if the thickness of the endometrium or the lining of the uterus need to be checked out. This imaging service is also ideal for evaluating the muscular walls of the uterus called the myometrium.
At the Cadogan Menopause and Menstrual Clinic, the service is offered directly by a trained gynecologist, saving our female patients the emotional discomfort and the time of seeing a radiologist. If they have any concerns or questions about the transvaginal ultrasound scan, London based patients can call our clinic or come in for a consultation where one of our practitioners will be happy to provide all the necessary information.
