What: A Pelvic Ultrasound is a radiation free procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to produce images that are used to assess organs and structures within the female pelvis, allowing quick visualization of the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Time: Approximately 15-30 minutes
Prep: Drink four 8 oz glasses of water and make sure to finish them one hour before your exam. Even though it may get uncomfortable, don't use the bathroom. A full bladder is very important in helping the sonographer view the pelvic organs clearly.
