Ultrasound scan in  Gynaecology  

A pelvic or gynaecology scan is performed for the detailed evaluation of the female pelvis. The trans-abdominal probe is commonly used in gynaecology practice. Using the trans-vaginal (internal) probe, the pelvic organs can be examined with improved clarity and definition as a result of the higher resolution vaginal transducer. In addition, 3D scan can also be done to add to the evaluation of pelvic disorders.

There are many uses for the ultrasound scan in gynaecology.

Indications for gynaecology scan

Evaluation of early pregnancy problems- miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy

Assessment of pelvic masses- ovarian cyst and uterine fibroids

Location of IUCD

Evaluation of ovarian follicular growth (follicular tracking) in infertility

Interventional ultrasonography in gynaecology e.g. oocyte (egg) retrieval during fertility treatment

Assessment of congenital abnormalities of the uterus

Early Pregnancy Scan(6-12 weeks gestation)

An early pregnancy scan is usually done soon after a woman knows that she is pregnant. The scan is done to confirm that the woman is pregnant and that the pregnancy is inside the womb(intra-uterine pregnancy) and not outside the womb(ectopic pregnancy) and to diagnose if a miscarriage has occurred. It is performed to confirm that the fetus, if already formed, is viable and has a heart beat and to estimate the gestational age of the fetus. Multiple fetuses can sometimes be diagnosed at this scan.

 

Evaluation of Pelvic masses

Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) overgrowths of fibrous and smooth muscle tissue of the womb. They are very common in women of reproductive age and rarely cancerous. Most women with fibroids are asymptomatic but some may have heavy menstrual bleeding, cramps or abdominal discomfort. Treatment options include observation, medication for symptom control or surgery.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where the tissues that line the inside of the womb (endometrium) are found outside the womb, in muscle layer of the womb (adenomyosis), ovary, bladder and bowel. Women may present with heavy bleeding or sometimes irregular periods, painful periods, pain during intercourse and lower abdominal pain in between periods. Endometriosis may also affect a woman’s ability to conceive. Treatment depends on symptoms and may involve medication or surgery depending on its severity.

Ovarian Cyst

Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacs. Most ovarian cysts are benign but some are cancerous, or may become cancerous over time. Ovarian cysts can vary in. They may be related to a woman’s periods (functional cysts) or may be due to pathology. Most ovarian cysts are do not cause symptoms.  However some ovarian cysts may cause problems such as abdominal swelling, lower abdominal pain (constant or intermittent), pain during intercourse, irregular or heavy periods. Sometimes a cyst may bleed into itself, burst or even twist (torsion). This can cause a sudden severe pain in the lower abdomen. Treatment depends on symptoms, size and nature of the cyst and may involve medication, surgery or close observation depending on its severity.
