ULTRASOUND PELVIS

WELCOME


The following information has been specially prepared to help you understand the procedure & to make your visit a pleasant one.

WHAT IS ULTRASOUND?

Medical ultrasound for diagnostic imaging employs sound waves in the range of 3-12 Mhz. The ultrasound probe emits & receives echoes. When placed on body, the echoes from area are depicted on the ultrasound monitor. This enables to see & examine the organs.
To optimize transmission of the sound wave, gel is applied over the specific body part to ensure good contact with the ultrasound probe.

WHY IS ULTRASOUND USED?

Ultrasound is used widely in all developed countries for diagnostic imaging. Ultrasound can be performed on many parts of the body such as pelvis, liver, kidneys, breasts etc. your doctor will order the required scan.

IS THERE ANY RISK INVOLVED?

Ultrasound waves are nonionizingradiation, unlike X-rays.
Research has shown that there are no harmful effects associated with the medical use of ultrasound.

HOW IS PELVIC SONOGRAPHY PERFORMED?

There are two main methods of performing a pelvis ultrasound examination:
  • Trans-abdominal scan
  • Trans-vaginal scan
The pelvic ultrasound scan is performed by a specially trained health care professional called a sonographer or by a doctor.
For the trans-abdominal scan, you will be required to lie on the couch. Warm gel is applied over the lower abdomen & an ultrasound probe is placed on the gel to enable ultrasonic probe is placed on the gel to enable ultrasonic scanning of the region.
For the trans-vaginal scan, a specially designed probe with double protective covering, is lubricated with gel & inserted into the vagina. The sonographer or doctor may need o put a cushion to elevate the buttock for your comfort & ease of scanning.
Most of the time a vaginal scan should not be painful. The discomfort, if any, is similar to that in a Pap smear.
The entire examination (trans-abdominal scan + trans-vaginal scan) is usually completed within half an hour, but may occasional be extended.

WHAT KIND OF SCANS CAN I EXPECT TO BE DONE?

For women who have had sexual experience, we recommend both the trans-abdominal& trans-vaginal scans for a thorough examination.  Each of these scans has its advantages. The abdominal approach offers a broad view of the entire pelvic. The trans-vaginal approach provides better visualization as the transducer is brought closer to the area being examined, thus improving the accuracy of the results.
For virgins, usually only a trans-abdominal scan is performed. Occasionally, we may offer a trans-rectal scan (with the probe inserted through the anus), if necessary.

PREPARATION FOR ULTRASOUND

A full bladder is required for trans-abdominal scan. To ensure a successful examination, it is important that you follow these preparatory steps :
  • 1st drink (200 ml) : 1 hour before the scan
  • 2nd drink (200 ml) : 45 mins before the scan
  • 3rd drink (200 ml) : 30 mins before the scan.
Do not go to the toilet or empty your bladder.
If you find it difficult to hold a full bladder, please alert your counter staff or queue coordinator.
There is no special preparation for trans-vaginal scan. You may be required to empty your bladder prior to scan.

CAN I BE SCANNED DURING MENSTRUATION?

Pelvic sonography can be performed even when you are having menses, unless there are specific instructions from your doctor.

WILL I BE NEED TO BE ADMITTED?

The examination does not require hospital admission. If you are hospitalized on the appointment day, please inform the ward staff to contact the department of Diagnostic Imaging about your appointment.

IMPORTANT POINTS TO BE NOTE :

  1. Please inform the doctor or sonographer if you are allergic to latex (rubber), any medication or antiseptic lotions.
  2. Please do not any valuables, jewelry, or excessive cash with you during your appointment.

  5. Infertility means not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying, Or, six months, if a woman is 35 or older. Women who can get pregnant but are unable to stay pregnant may also be infertile. Infertility is not always a woman's problem. Both women and men can have problems that cause infertility. About one-third of infertility cases are caused by women's problems. Another one third of fertility problems are due to the man.The other cases are caused by a mixture of male and female problems or by unknown problems.

  8. The time when an egg is produced from your ovary is called OVULATION. Ovulation usually occurs each month, and at the same time the lining of your womb becomes engorged with blood ready to receive and nourish the expectant embryo, also your bodies hormones begin to rise in preparation of supporting a pregnancy. This is normally in the middle of your monthly cycle (around day 14 if you have a 28 day cycle). Your egg will live for about 12-24 hours after ovulation.

  13. To be completely honest with you, IVF success rates aren't good. Although I can tell you that we did fall pregnant in our first cycle, this isn't the case for the majority of couples. The older you are, the less likely it is that you will conceive. With regard to women under thirty five the average rate of success is just under 30%. This goes straight down from there to just under one percent for women over 44 years of age. These are harsh statistics. Effectively, what this means is that more than sixty-six per cent of you will not be successful and in the scenario in which you don't have any more embryos you will be requested to withstand the expense and stress of another hormone injection cycle.
