Ultrasounds Q & A

Innovative HealthCare Physicians

What is ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses sound waves to create images of structures and processes inside the body. It's noninvasive, painless, and uses no radiation. In addition to still images, ultrasound can also be used to create videos showing processes as they occur.

How is ultrasound performed?

Ultrasound is performed in a darkened room so the images can be seen more clearly on the computer monitor. The test uses handheld device called a transducer which is passed over the treatment area. The transducer emits sound waves through the skin painlessly. Before your treatment, a special gel will be applied to the surface of your skin to enable the transducer to be moved over the surface and to facilitate the transmission of sound waves for the clearest images possible. During the procedure, the transducer may need to be pressed firmly into your skin in some areas to see fine details, and you may feel some slight discomfort as a result of the pressure.

How is ultrasound used in gynecology?

In addition to its use in monitoring the health of a developing baby, ultrasound can be used to look for issues in the uterus and placenta that could cause problems during pregnancy or delivery. In gynecologic care, ultrasound is used to help diagnose issues with fertility, incontinence and other medical concerns, to evaluate and assess growths including fibroids, polyps and cysts, and to look for abnormalities in the urinary tract, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. It can also be used to help monitor and manage treatment of a wide range of issues.

Is ultrasound safe, even if I'm pregnant?

Yes, because ultrasound uses no radiation, it's safe to be used during pregnancy and right up until delivery.
