Our Imaging Department has been designed for women’s comfort and privacy. We utilise the latest in breast imaging technology which integrates the use of breast ultrasound and interventional procedures, including biopsies and FNAs, to provide a complete service in one location.
At this stage Mammograms are not offered at our clinic.
Ultrasound has been used for decades to assess the health of the female pelvic organs – mainly the uterus, and ovaries.
What happens during my pelvic ultrasound examination?
If you have never had sexual intercourse then your scan will most likely be an abdominal scan, Gynaecological ultrasound examination usually requires a vaginal scan. An ultrasound probe is placed in the vagina to optimise views of the internal organs. A vaginal scan can be performed at any time of the menstrual cycle, although our preference is to perform it just after the period has finished.
How do I prepare for my pelvic ultrasound examination?
Pelvis / Pregnancy (prior to 12 weeks):
- 1½ hours before your appointment, empty your bladder.
- Over the next 30 minutes, drink 5 glasses of water.
- Don’t empty your bladder after this.
