Pelvic ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the pelvic organs, such as the uterus and ovaries. During the ultrasound, a technician will apply a gel to the abdomen and use a wand-like device called a transducer to transmit sound waves through the body. The sound waves will then bounce back, creating images on a screen that can be examined by a doctor.
A pelvic ultrasound can detect various conditions, including uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. In some cases, a sonohysterogram may be used in addition to a regular ultrasound. This involves injecting a small amount of saline solution into the uterus before the ultrasound to create better images of the inside of the uterus.
At Aashakiran IVF, pelvic ultrasounds and sonohysterograms are routinely used as part of the diagnostic process for infertility. These imaging tests can help identify any structural abnormalities or issues with the reproductive organs that may be contributing to infertility. Based on the results, the medical team at Aashakiran IVF can develop an individualized treatment plan for the patient, which may include assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF.
