transvaginal ultrasound


A procedure that uses an ultrasound probe or transducer inserted in the vagina (birth canal) to produce images of structures and organs in the pelvis, including the vagina, uterus (womb), ovaries, fallopian tubes (the tubes that carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus) and bladder.

Doctors use transvaginal ultrasound to look for tumours or other abnormalities.

Also called transvaginal sonography.
