What is a Pelvic Ultrasound Scan?
Our Pelvic Well being scans are intended to check the size and condition of the uterus, ovaries, and womb lining. The scan looks for a range of anomalies such as cysts, fibroids, PCOS and even cancer screening.
During a 20-minute Pelvic Ultrasound Scan, a probe is used on the lower abdomen and high-frequency sound waves create images of the organs within the pelvis. There is also an internal transvaginal scan option that will give a more detailed view. The procedure is painless, you will only feel slight pressure and discomfort when the probe is pressed against your abdomen or inserted into the vagina.
Why Are These Scans Important?
Ultrasound Care aims to give the best service to men and women and provide support and health advice to those who need it. With our Pelvic Ultrasound Scan, we can detect any abnormalities including in the female body, such as cysts, fibroids, tumours, infections, and anatomical abnormalities. We can monitor pregnancies too with our sister company Peek A Baby who deal with pregnancy scans. Find out more about them and their services here.
Some indications of abnormalities with the reproductive organs or pelvic area can include painful and heavy periods, polycystic ovaries and a family history of ovarian cancer. If you have any of these, book a Pelvic Ultrasound Scan today! Our scans are available to women aged 16 and over.
A pelvic ultrasound scan delivers real-time images of the pelvis, allowing our specialists to pick up on issues with the menstrual cycle, for example.
How to Prepare for Your Scan
- Wear something comfortable and loose for your appointment.
- Drink 3-4 pints of water an hour before your scan for the best results.
- Decide whether you’d like an internal scan as well as a lower abdomen scan.
