What is Pelvic Ultrasound?

A Pelvic Ultrasound is a procedure that takes images of the organs within the pelvis using sound waves. Your doctor may order this test to detect a disease or to monitor your baby’s health in the womb.

Who needs it?

In women, a pelvic ultrasound can be used by doctors to:

1. Check for issues with the uterus or ovary structure

2. Search the ovaries, uterus, or bladder for cancer

3. Find a system for the intrauterine (IUD)

4. Check for growths like tumors that are noncancerous, fibroids, or cysts

5. Find the reason for discomfort or abnormal bleeding

6. Test or heal fertility disorders

7. Track the health of your baby

Pelvic ultrasound should be used in men to:

1. Test for bladder, prostate gland, and seminal vesicle disorders

2.  Find cancers or stones in the kidney


A system called a transducer that transmits sound waves is used for a pelvic ultrasound.  These waves bounce off your organs and tissues and then resonate back to the transducer, a machine turns the sound waves into a representation of the organs that display on the computer monitor.


 Unlike X-rays, radiation is not used in this ultrasound so it has no risks.


The ultrasound results will be explained to you by your doctor. This study will show whether your reproductive organs, blood vessels, or unborn baby have any problems.
