Transvaginal Ultrasound, Contrast-Infusion Sonography, and 3-D Gynecologic Ultrasound
Transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) has become the "Gold Standard" for evaulating the uterus and ovaries in an office setting. It is accurate, quick, safe, painless, and inexpensive when compared to MRI or CT scans.
Since TVUS does not require you to have a full bladder (transabdominal ultrasound does), it is much more comfortable. Because it looks through the vagina (instead of through the abdomen, bladder, and bowel), the image we see is much more detailed and accurate. Often, abnormalities can be seen by TVUS that are not identifiable by pelvic examination.
We have performed over 100,000 TVUS examinations over the last 10 years. Each procedure has been performed or directly supervised by Dr. Johns, giving us an unequalled body of experience in interpreting what we see during the scans. The addition of Color Doppler, 3-D. and contrast sonography has greatly enhanced our diagnostic efficiency.
We perform TVUS in the same rooms where examinations take place, you are not sent to another floor, building, or office for your procedure. TVUS findings are immediately correlated with the pelvic examination. Your results are immediately available in the overwhelming majority of cases.Accredited by AIUM (American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine) in gynecologic and 3-D ultrasound.
