Transvaginal SonographyMRI Resource Directory:<br> - Pelvic -
 
(TVS) The transvaginal sonography (transvaginal echography or endovaginal ultrasound), uses a small vaginal transducer (5-7.5 MHz) that is inserted into the vagina to depict the inner female organs (uterus, ovaries, vessels). As a general rule, ultrasound works better when the probe is close to the area being examined. Compared with a sonogram through the abdominal wall, the transvaginal technique produces a sharper image, not only because of the close proximity to the uterus, but also because the better signal to noise ratio of the used transducer.

Indications:
point detection and delineation of pelvic masses;
point ectopic pregnancy;
point ovarian cysts or tumors;
point pelvic inflammatory disease;
point bladder and rectal tumors.
The advantage of transvaginal sonography is being able to get very close to the structures of the pelvis, and thus get better images and a more reliable diagnosis.

Hysterosalpingo Contrast SonographyMRI Resource Directory:<br> - Pelvic -
 
(HyCoSy) Hysterosalpingo contrast sonography is used for evaluation of fallopian tube patency in patients with fertility problems who underwent transvaginal sonography. HyCoSy compared to more invasive techniques such as chromo-laparoscopy is rapidly becoming the screening test of choice to determine tubal patency.
Any body cavity that can be accessed can, in principle, be injected with vascular contrast. The contrast agent is instilled into the uterine cavity via a small Foley type catheter and, using transvaginal echography, the passage of the echogenic contrast along the tubes and into the adnexal peritoneum is tracked.
Hysterosalpingo contrast sonography does not offer the same anatomical and false negative results, e.g., because of tubal spasm, are possible so conventional X-ray salpingography is needed when tubal surgery is an option.

Pelvic UltrasoundMRI Resource Directory:<br> - Pelvic -
 
A pelvic ultrasound is commonly used during pregnancy to check on the prenatal development of the fetus. Gynecologic ultrasonography is a tool to image the female pelvic organs, like uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, bladder, pouch of Douglas, and pelvic pathology of relevance outside of pregnancy. Male pelvic ultrasound checks the health of the bladder and prostate.
Pelvic ultrasound can be performed externally through the abdominal wall, transvaginal or transrectal. A full bladder is advantageous in obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound, because sound waves passes very well through liquid; the bladder is used as an acoustic window to see deeper structures and to push the bowel out the way, allowing for better imaging. If the bladder can not be made full enough, or if the gas within the bowel makes imaging difficult, transvaginal sonography is the most effective way of imaging the pelvis.

A vaginal transducer is a small ultrasound probe that is inserted directly into the vagina. The vaginal transducer is used in gynecological ultrasound scans and has a long and slender shape to fit into the vagina. A cover is used to ensure sterility, and the transducer is lubricated with a water-soluble gel.

Obstetric and Gynecologic UltrasoundMRI Resource Directory:<br> - Obstetric -
 
Obstetric and gynecologic [gynaecologic, Brit.] ultrasound is an essential tool to evaluate the fetus, uterus, ovaries and surrounding tissues. Pelvic ultrasound is performed routinely during pregnancy, examinations to determine the cause of infertility, pelvic pain or abnormal vaginal bleeding.
Women with uncomplicated pregnancies may be referred to ultrasound between the 16th and 20th week of pregnancy for routine assessment of gestational age, fetal size and growth with a real-time scanner. Many defects of the fetal anatomy can be identified using ultrasound examination during the mid-trimester of pregnancy.
For gynecological sonography, a transabdominal sonogram is performed with a full bladder. If the pelvic ultrasound shows any pathology, or does not provide a clear image of the organs, a transvaginal ultrasound is performed to better visualize the uterus and ovaries. In general, ultrasound can detect inflammation, free fluid, cysts, and tumors in the pelvic region.
