Gynecological Ultrasound

What is a gynecologic ultrasound?

A gynecologic ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of your reproductive organs, including the uterus and ovaries. 

The expert providers at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey use this noninvasive test to evaluate, diagnose, and monitor women’s health conditions, such as chronic pelvic pain. 

The team at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey is certified by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), an organization dedicated to safe and effective ultrasounds in medicine.

Why would I need a gynecologic ultrasound?

You may be familiar with an obstetric ultrasound, which uses the same imaging technology to monitor a developing fetus inside the uterus. Other than pregnancy, there are many reasons you may need an ultrasound. 

The team at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey may use a gynecologic ultrasound to evaluate pelvic pain or check for possible causes of infertility. Ultrasound can also help your provider diagnose and monitor growths, such as:


  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Polyps


The team at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey also uses ultrasound to assess congenital conditions that affect the female reproductive system, such as Müllerian anomalies that affect the formation of your uterus. 

What happens during a gynecologic ultrasound?

When you visit Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey for a gynecologic ultrasound, you can expect top-quality service and state-of-the-art 3D technology. From short wait times to immediate results, the friendly and accommodating team caters to your needs every step of the way. 

Depending on your specific condition, you may get a transabdominal or transvaginal ultrasound. Neither test causes pain, but the transvaginal procedure involves inserting a probe inside your vagina. 

Your provider may cover the probe with a latex condom before a transvaginal ultrasound, so be sure to alert them if you have a latex allergy. 

Before a transabdominal ultrasound, your provider may apply a small amount of gel to the skin on your abdomen. This makes it easier for the ultrasound waves to pass through. Then, your provider moves a handpiece (transducer) around your abdomen.
