Why I may need a pelvic ultrasound

A pelvic ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic exam, that produces images that are used to assess organs and structures within the female and male pelvis. This is primarily used to check the following:

  • The size, shape and position of the uterus for possible growths such as fibroids
  • Review of the prostate gland
  • Review the thickness, tissue density of the fallopian tubes
  • The size, shape and position of the ovaries for possible growths such as ovarian cysts
  • Review the length and thickness of the cervix
  • Review any changes in bladder shape
