You have to lie down on the table with your knees bent & given a transducer to put into the vagina which is covered with a condom & a gel.
This transducer now sends out the sound waves reflecting off the body structures. These waves are collected by the computer to create a clear picture. It is a painless test, there may be some discomfort in some women but only a small part of the transducer is placed inside the vagina.
It helps in determining the thickness of the endometrial stripe in which 8-10 mm is optimal. We refer for the ultrasound monitoring as well which usually starts on the day 3 of the cycle. We determine the ovulation sonographically by these sonographic signs:

  • Suddenly disappearance of the follicle or regresses in size
  • Irregular margins
  • Intra-follicular echoes
  • Follicle suddenly becomes more echogenic
  • Free fluid in the pouch of Douglas
  • Increased perifollicular blood flow velocities
  • It is done by DIC to identify the maturation status of eggs as it is very helpful in assessing the follicle size that supports the growing egg & for determining the thickness of the uterine lining.

DIC refers the follicular monitoring as an important process in woman taking fertility medication as it is very essential to know the number of eggs ovulate & the level of estradiol to proceed safely. We refers that each matured egg must produce between 15-200 pg/ml. Our specialists adjust the dose of the fertility medication during the treatment.

Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (x-ray). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.

Ultrasound imaging is usually a painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

An abdominal ultrasound produces a picture of the organs and other structures in the upper abdomen.

Abdominal ultrasound imaging is performed to evaluate the:

  • kidneys
  • liver
  • gallbladder
  • pancreas
  • spleen
  • abdominal aorta and other blood vessels of the abdomen

Ultrasound is used to help diagnose a variety of conditions, such as:

  • abdominal pains
  • inflamed appendix
  • enlarged abdominal organ
  • stones in the gallbladder or kidney
  • an aneurysm in the aorta

Doppler ultrasound images can help the physician to see and evaluate:

  • blockages to blood flow (such as clots)
  • narrowing of vessels (which may be caused by plaque)
  • tumors and congenital malformation

You should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for your ultrasound exam. You will need to remove all clothing and jewelry in the area to be examined.

You may be asked to wear a gown during the procedure.

Tell your doctor if you have had a barium enema or a series of upper GI (gastrointestinal) tests within the past two days. Barium that remains in the intestines can interfere with the ultrasound test.

Other preparations depend on the type of ultrasound you are having.

  • For a study of the liver, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas, you may be asked to eat a fat-free meal on the evening before the test and then to avoid eating for 8 to 12 hours before the test.
  • For ultrasound of the kidneys, you may be asked to drink four to six glasses of liquid about an hour before the test to fill your bladder. You may be asked to avoid eating for 8 to 12 hours before the test to avoid gas buildup in the intestines.

For ultrasound of the aorta, you may need to avoid eating for 8 to 12 hours before the test.

Various diagnostic techniques are used for diagnosing abdominal problems. Amongst these are abdominal ultrasound, endoscopy, x-ray and CT scanning.

Abdominal ultrasound is usually the first line method for examining the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, spleen and blood vessels of the abdomen. It can also show the blood flow to these organs and the blood flow of the main blood vessels in the abdomen.

Abdominal pain is the most common indication for an abdominal ultrasound. However, your doctor may also refer you because you are suffering from other symptoms or he maybe concerned about his examination findings or blood tests.

Amongst other conditions, abdominal ultrasound can detect stones in the gall bladder and kidneys, cysts and some tumors. It can also detect an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which is a widening of the aortic artery and is a potentially fatal condition for which early medical intervention can be life saving.

Ultrasound maybe one of many investigations you require and you should consult your doctor to ensure that any other necessary investigations are arranged.
