Gynecological ultrasound examination
Ultrasound test (USE) is an indispensable method of examination in the field of gynecology. There are many different uses. Both abdominal (stomach) and transvaginal (uterine) ultrasound are often used.
Abdominal ultrasound examination. At virgin patients, only transabdominal ultrasound is performed because the vaginal route is not appropriate. To do this, the patient's bladder must be full. A full bladder provides a clearer view of the uterus and ovaries as an acoustic window.
Transvaginal ultrasound examination. Transvaginal ultrasound examination requires a woman to completely empty the bladder. The small pelvic organs are examined more closely from the uterus, and the images obtained are more accurate. Large cysts in the pelvis alone may not appear to be sufficient for a vaginal ultrasound examination, and in this case the patient may be examined by both methods.
What information can you get during the gynecological ultrasound examination:
Uterus and uterine cervix:
- The size and structure of the uterus, the structure can be assessed as homogeneous.
- If there are fibroids, their size and location can be determined.
- The endometrium (the mucous membrane in the uterine cavity) can be assessed, the thickness can be measured, and if there are polyps and polyp-like structures, they can be detected.
- Congenital anomalies of the uterus can be assessed.
- Observe the spiral inside the uterus, assess the position.
- Naboti cysts in the neck of the uterus and other derivatives can be seen.
- The size and structure of the ovaries can be assessed
- The size, structure, properties of the fluid and solids that fill the ovaries can be evaluated.
- Doppler ultrasound can determine whether the cysts in the ovaries are blood-borne, benign or malignant.
- In patients with infertility, the approach of ovulation can be estimated.
- Transvaginal ultrasound is especially valuable in the diagnosis of tubal pregnancy.
- The presence of hydrosalpinks (pipes filled with liquid) can be determined.
- The presence of pyosalpinks (tubes filled with pus) can be detected.
- Fluid and derivatives in the pelvis, ie in the lower part of the abdomen, where the uterus and ovaries are, can be seen during ultrasound examination.
- Derivatives developing from organs in the pelvis (uterus, ovaries, intestines, tubes, bladder) can be observed.
