A pelvic ultrasound is a medical imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the organs and structures located in the lower abdomen and pelvis of a person’s body.
During a pelvic ultrasound, a small, handheld device called a transducer is placed on the abdomen or inserted into the vagina (in the case of a transvaginal ultrasound) and moved around to capture images of the reproductive organs (ovaries, uterus, cervix), bladder, and other structures in the pelvis.
Pelvic ultrasounds may be used to help diagnose various medical conditions, such as:
- Pelvic pain
- Abnormal uterine bleeding
- Fibroids or other growths in the uterus
- Ovarian cysts or tumors
- Infections or inflammation of the reproductive organs
- Pelvic organ prolapse
Pelvic ultrasounds are considered safe, non-invasive, and generally do not require any special preparation by the patient beforehand. However, the specific instructions for the test may vary depending on the reason for the ultrasound and the healthcare provider’s preferences.
