Descriptions of Transvaginal ultrasound

Transvaginal ultrasound: A procedure used to examine the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and bladder. An instrument is inserted into the vagina that causes sound waves to bounce off organs inside the pelvis. These sound waves create echoes that are sent to a computer, which creates a picture called a sonogram. Also called transvaginal sonography (TVS).

Summary Information: Transvaginal ultrasound

Transvaginal ultrasound: A transvaginal ultrasound is a medical device that emits high frequency sound waves and is used to diagnose diseases or conditions of the female pelvic organs (cervix, ovaries, uterus, and vagina).
