The Importance of an Ultrasound

Sometimes a closer look is required to fully assess an area of the body. An ultrasound allows us to do this by using high-frequency sound waves to create an image of a patient’s internal body structures.

What is a Pelvic Ultrasound?

A pelvic ultrasound is a procedure that safely and non-invasively examines organs and structures such as the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. A transabdominal ultrasound is performed on the exterior of the stomach, while a transvaginal ultrasound is performed by inserting a device into the vagina.

Sonohysterogram/Saline Infusion Sonogram

A special kind of ultrasound that we do involves adding a saline infusion sonogram (sonohysterogram) for diagnosis of abnormal bleeding. We will put a catheter balloon into the uterus to infuse saline so that we can examine the uterine lining in more detail. This may cause cramping, so we recommend taking Ibuprofen beforehand. 

This is often combined with an endometrial biopsy for a more comprehensive evaluation of abnormal bleeding. The saline infusion sonogram makes it easier to detect endometrial polyps, submucosal fibroids, and other problems within the endometrial cavity that may be missed by plain vaginal ultrasound alone.
