What is a Pelvic Ultrasound?

A Pelvic ultrasound uses reflected sound waves to produce images of the lower abdominal structures and organs. Organs that are clearly depicted on a pelvic ultrasound are solid or fluid-filled (for example the female uterus). A pelvic ultrasound can be generally done by two different methods: transabdominally, or transvaginally, and assesses the following:

• Ovaries

• Uterus

• Cervix

• Fallopian tubes


Transabdominal examination requires a full bladder. We ask that you come with a comfortably full bladder. Empty your bladder 1 hour before the examination and immediately drink 600 ml of water. The sonographer who performs the examination will discuss the transvaginal ultrasound with you and will perform this with your consent.
