Ultrasound in gynaecology
Gynaecological ultrasounds can be used to determine the shape, size and position of the uterus and ovaries, examine the thickness of the uterine lining, and detect the presence of fibroids (myomas) and cysts in the ovaries. Reasons for making a gynaecological ultrasound include, for example:
- to detect abnormalities in women with gynaecological complaints;
- to check the position of an IUD;
- to assess the functioning of the ovaries in women with fertility problems;
- to assess an early pregnancy (up to 12 weeks).
