Ultrasound has uses in many areas of gynaecology to assess the pelvic organs.
Sound is easily transmitted through water. For this reason a full bladder can help with visualization of the pelvic organs when looking through the abdominal wall. Often a more accurate image can be obtained by placing the ultrasound transducer into the vagina - an empty bladder is better for this type of examination.

A transducer in the vagina will also give closer proximity to the pelvic organs and give clearer and more detailed images.

Reasons why a gynaecological scan may be requested include:

  1. Abnormal bleeding
  2. Abdominal pain
  3. To Assess a lump that has been found
  4. Exclude ovarian cancer
  5. Infertility
  6. Sonohysterography
  7. HyCoSy
