A transvaginal ultrasound, also known as an endovaginal ultrasound, is a medical imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of the female reproductive organs. It involves inserting a specially designed wand or probe into the vagina to capture images of the pelvic region.
Transvaginal ultrasounds are commonly used to examine various structures within the pelvis, including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix. They can provide detailed information about the size, shape, and condition of these organs. This imaging technique can evaluate the ovaries and uterus to check for any abnormalities that may be affecting fertility.
