3D Pelvic Ultrasound Scan-FAQ

Book Your Private Follicular 3D Pelvic Ultrasound Scan

A 3D pelvic ultrasound is an advanced imaging procedure that creates three-dimensional images of the pelvic organs, such as the uterus, ovaries, and bladder. This technique provides more detailed and comprehensive views compared to traditional 2D ultrasounds.

  • How is it Different from a Traditional 2D Ultrasound?

Unlike 2D ultrasounds that produce flat, two-dimensional images, 3D ultrasounds create a volumetric image, offering a more realistic and detailed view of the pelvic organs. This allows for better evaluation of the structures and any abnormalities.

  • What Can it Diagnose?

It’s used to diagnose and assess various conditions, including uterine anomalies, fibroids, ovarian cysts, and complications in pregnancy. It can also aid in fertility assessments and gynecological evaluations.

  • Is it Safe?

Yes, 3D pelvic ultrasounds are safe. They use sound waves without ionizing radiation, making them a non-invasive and low-risk procedure.

  • Are Preparations Required?

Typically, you might be asked to have a full bladder for better visualization.

  • How Long Does it Take?

The duration can vary, but generally, a 3D pelvic ultrasound takes about 20-30 minutes, depending on the complexity of the scan and the clarity of images required.

  • Will I Experience Discomfort?

Most people do not experience significant discomfort during a 3D pelvic ultrasound. Some might feel mild pressure or discomfort, especially during a transvaginal scan.

  • Can it be Used During Pregnancy?

Yes, 3D pelvic ultrasounds can be used during pregnancy. They provide detailed images that can be helpful for assessing the fetus and the uterus.

  • How Soon Will I Receive Results?

Following your ultrasound, we promptly deliver an initial verbal summary of the findings to offer immediate insight. Subsequently, a comprehensive written report, accompanied by all relevant images, will be sent to you. We highly encourage you to promptly share this detailed report with your physician for an in-depth evaluation and to discuss any necessary next steps in your care.

  • Are There any Limitations?

While 3D ultrasounds offer detailed images, they may not always be necessary for every condition. Sometimes, they can be more expensive than traditional 2D ultrasounds. Also, the quality of the images can be affected by factors like the patient’s body composition and the position of the organ or fetus.
