Transvaginal probe

transvaginal probe which is also called endovaginal ultrasound is a type of pelvic ultrasound used by doctors to examine female reproductive organs. This includes the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and vagina.

Unlike a regular abdominal or pelvic ultrasound, where the ultrasound wand (transducer) rests on the outside of the pelvis, this procedure involves your doctor or a technician inserting an ultrasound probe about 2 or 3 inches into your vaginal canal.

This Ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that uses sound waves to “see” inside your body and create detailed images which the physician can study.

Transvaginal ultrasounds can check for:

  • the shape, position, and size of the ovaries and uterus
  • the thickness and length of the cervix
  • blood flow through the organs in the pelvis
  • the shape of the bladder and any changes
  • the thickness and presence of fluids near the bladder or in the:
    • fallopian tubes
    • myometrium, the muscle tissue of the uterus
    • endometrium
