    • What is transvaginal ultrasound? When is it necessary? Is it safe?
      Transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) is a type of intracavitary ultrasound done in females to visualize the pelvic organs like uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, endometrium and other pelvic organs well. It is done with the help of special high frequency transducer (probe) which appears like a wand. Before inserting it into the vagina, the probe is covered with a gel and condom, hence making it sterile and safe. Transvaginal ultrasound remarkably improves the resolution and image quality while scanning due to the reduced distance between the probe and pelvic structures. Use of ...
