Ultrasound Scanning Gynaecological
This ultrasound examination is conducted to exclude obvious abnormalities within your pelvis including abnormalities of:
• The uterus (womb)
• The myometrium (the muscular body of the uterus)
• The endometrium (the lining of the uterine cavity)
• The ovaries
• The adnexa (the areas around each ovary).
This scan is also used for the investigation of infertility, ovarian screening and diagnosis of early pregnancy complications.
Musculoskeletal (sports injuries)
Vascular (blood vessels)
An ultrasound examination is a painless medical examination which uses soundwaves to “see” inside the body. No radiation is used in ultrasound. A transducer (which is like a small microphone) is placed over the area of the body being examined. Soundwaves pass through the skin from the transducer and echoes are reflected back to it. Those echoes are converted into electrical signals which can then be viewed as images on a television screen.
