Ultrasound Q&A

What is an ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that uses sound waves to develop images of the inside of your body. Unlike X-rays, ultrasounds do not emit any radiation. Roswell ObGyn, LLC offers onsite ultrasounds, which is a convenient option that can save you time and money. 

The practice offers pregnancy ultrasounds to view your unborn baby and provide information about the baby’s development, growth, and overall health.

Diagnostic ultrasounds offer detailed information regarding your reproductive organs and other parts of the body that aren’t visible during a routine physical exam. 

Why might I need an ultrasound?

Your Roswell ObGyn, LLC specialist may recommend an ultrasound for the following reasons:

  • Evaluate the health of an unborn baby
  • Confirm a pregnancy
  • Check the position and size of your baby
  • Estimate the age of your baby
  • Check for birth defects or disabilities
  • Evaluate your reproductive organs
  • Guide a biopsy
  • Assess a breast lump
  • Determine the cause of pelvic pain
  • Find the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Diagnose potential reasons for infertility 

To determine if you would benefit from an ultrasound, your Roswell ObGyn, LLC provider asks about your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle habits, medications, and more. They complete a physical exam, including pelvic and breast exams, as needed. 

You might also need a Pap test, mammogram, blood tests, urine testing, other diagnostic tests, and an ultrasound.

What should I expect during an ultrasound?

Ultrasounds are painless. Simply lie down on a reclining chair or table and remain still. 

Pelvic ultrasound

Your provider may apply a special gel to your pelvic area or abdomen before gently gliding a handheld transducer over targeted tissues to create images using sound waves.

Transvaginal ultrasound

During a vaginal ultrasound, your specialist inserts a transducer into your vagina to emit soundwaves and create images of reproductive organs or an unborn baby.

Your specialist may ask you to drink water and have a full bladder before undergoing an ultrasound. It usually lasts between 30-60 minutes.

What happens after the procedure?

After an ultrasound, the Roswell ObGyn, LLC team reviews the results with you. They determine if you need further diagnostic testing, lifestyle changes, medications, or another treatment. Your provider also addresses questions or concerns you may have.
