Gynaecological ultrasound scans
Both transabdominal and high resolution transvaginal techniques are used. 3D imaging modes are available to
enhance conventional scan techniques. Transvaginal imaging of the pelvis produces far superior detail of the gynaecological anatomy and is performed with the bladder empty.
Indications include: abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, suspected pelvic mass, dysmenorrhoea, amenorrhea,
suspected ectopic or early pregnancy complication and infertility. This modality is also useful in routine screening for pelvic pathology in women with a past or family history of ovarian neoplasm
and assessing the endometrium in women on Tamoxifen therapy.
