Gynaecological ultrasound services include the use of sonography with an ultrasound machine to provide imaging. It is a common procedure used in general screening of women’s health, especially for specific purposes such as:
Ovarian, uterine and tubal pathology evaluation: Ultrasound is used to examine the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes. This can help discover any abnormalities within these organs, such as ovarian cysts.
Follicular monitoring: Ultrasound can be used to monitor the follicles in order to determine the number of follicles remaining and the status of follicular maturation. It can be conducted as part of a fertility test for women to determine their fertility through the number of existing follicles. Follicular monitoring is also used as part of IVF treatments, as constant monitoring helps to determine when ovulation occurs.
