WELL WOMAN PELVIS SCAN
Available for patients over 18 years old.
What is this scan for?
If there are irregular symptoms such as pelvic pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding or other menstrual problems such as swelling, bloating or irregular periods, it could be a symptom of:
- Ovarian cysts
- Polycystic ovaries
- Ovarian or Uterine Cancer
- Position of a contraceptive coil
In supported fertility treatment, it is often necessary to check the pelvis especially for pre-IVF cycles, management of IVF treatment and pre-ovulation assessment.
What does this scan show?
This scan can identify abnormalities in the female pelvic by looking at the ovaries, uterus (womb), cervix, fallopian tubes and surrounding structures in females. During the pelvic ultrasound scan, the uterus, ovaries and endometrium will be checked to help find the cause of these problems.
The Ultrasound Scan Procedure
In preparation for transabdominal scans, we recommend drinking one to two pints of water approximately 1 hour before the appointment, and to avoid emptying your bladder. It is advised to have a moderately full bladder as the fluid provides a contrast for the scan process, and can improve the quality of the images that the scan will produce.
Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive and does not use ionizing radiation. During the ultrasound scan the sonographer will place a warm water-based gel on the area to be examined, and will then press firmly on the skin with an ultrasound probe, moving it around until they have obtained the desired images. A trans-vaginal scan will be used for this type of scan. The ultrasound scan has no known risks and is usually pain free. When the scan is completed the gel can be wiped off easily using tissue.
