Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to detect or rule out medical problems to prevent complications.
Your provider places a transducer over your skin to emit sound waves and view organs and other tissues inside your body. The procedure is fast, noninvasive, and painless without downtime.
Your OB/GYN specialist might recommend ultrasound if you exhibit certain symptoms, are at risk of a medical problem, or you’re pregnant. Ultrasound technology can help:
If you’re pregnant or think you might be pregnant, ultrasound helps your provider confirm pregnancy or evaluate the health of your unborn baby.
To determine if you’re a candidate for ultrasound, your practitioner reviews your medical history and asks about any symptoms you may have. They complete a physical exam to evaluate your overall health.
If you have signs or symptoms of a health problem that’s not related to obstetrics or gynecology, your provider can refer you to a highly qualified specialist.
During the ultrasound, you relax on a comfortable chair or exam table. Your provider may complete transabdominal ultrasound by placing gel on your abdomen or pelvic area and moving a transducer over your skin to emit sound waves.
During a transvaginal ultrasound, your OB/GYN specialist places a tiny transducer inside your vagina after they coat it with gel.
After an ultrasound, there’s no downtime so you can resume your regular activities right away. When your OB/GYN specialist receives your results, they review them with you to let you know if treatment is necessary.
For example, you may require further diagnostic testing, medications, or a minimally invasive procedure.
If you’re pregnant, experience unusual symptoms, or are at risk of a women’s health problem, schedule an appointment with Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC by phone or book online today to find out if ultrasound is right for you.
