What To Expect Vaginal Ultrasound

A vaginal ultrasound is a diagnostic test that uses high-frequency sound waves to 

produce images of the inside of the vagina and nearby structures. 

The procedure is also sometimes called pelvic ultrasonography or pelvic sonography. 

During a vaginal ultrasound, a small transducer (probe) is inserted into the vagina. 

The transducer emits sound waves that bounce off organs and tissues 

in the pelvis to create an image (sonogram). A vaginal ultrasound can be used to 

Evaluate the size, shape, and position of the uterus
