Ultrasound Pelvis - Non-Invasive Imaging Technique to Produce Images of the Pelvis
Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive medical test that involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body. The Ultrasound images are captured in real-time and can show the structure and movement of the internal organs, as well as blood flow through blood vessels. Ultrasound-Pelvis provides images of the structures and organs in the lower abdomen.
The Pelvic Ultrasound Can Be Classified As Follows:
Ultrasound – Pelvis is generally performed to evaluate bladder, ovaries, uterus, cervix and fallopian tubes. Apart from these, this imaging technique is also used to monitor the development of an embryo or fetus during pregnancy to confirm the suspected due date and to detect multiple fetuses. In women, this technique is useful to identify ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids and ovarian or uterine cancers. The Ultrasound Pelvis helps to find the cause of symptoms such as pelvic pain, urinary problems, or abnormal menstrual bleeding in women. In men, it is used to evaluate the bladder, seminal vesicles, and prostate. This technique also helps to identify kidney stones, tumors and other disorders in the urinary bladder.
In ultrasound imaging, when a sound wave strikes an object, it bounces back or echoes. These echo waves are measured to detect abnormal masses such as tumors, cysts, extra fluid in the pelvis, stones in the urinary tract, or to detect changes in appearance of organs, tissues and vessels.
Ultrasound – Pelvis is a safe and painless test to produce images of the pelvis.
