Ultrasound uses sound waves to create a picture of the internal organs of the body. The sound waves hit tissue, fluid or bone, and then the waves bounce back like echoes, creating an image that is relayed onto a screen. No radiation is involved.
An pelvic ultrasound is used in gynecology to examine the pelvic organs, uterus, cervix, tubes and ovaries. It is often used to help identify a pelvic mass, ovarian cyst, fibroids, or causes for abnormal bleeding and infertility.
