GYN Ultrasound

A gynecological ultrasound is used to examine the pelvic organs. This ultrasound can show:
  • Fibroid tumors
  • Pelvic mass location, size and shape
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Problems that could cause pain or bleeding
  • The position of an intrauterine device (IUD)
  • Ovulation status (treating infertility)

A sonohysterogram uses saline infused into the uterus during a transvaginal ultrasound to detect the presence of intrauterine lesions.

A hysteroscopy uses a slender device (the hysteroscope) to see the inside of the uterus. It is inserted through the vagina and cervix (opening of the uterus). This allows your provider to see inside the uterine cavity.

A hysterosalpingography (HSG) is a special X-ray test. It may detect abnormal changes in the size and shape of the uterus and fallopian tubes.
