On Site Ultrasounds

Ultrasounds are safe, produce exceptional images, and are very convenient because they’re provided on-site at Feminine Urgicare in Paramus, New Jersey. Its women’s health specialists perform fetal, breast, and pelvic ultrasounds, obtaining the information needed to identify and diagnose gynecological problems and monitor your unborn baby’s development. They welcome walk-in patients needing on-site ultrasounds, but many women prefer to schedule an appointment by calling or booking online.

What is ultrasound?

 Ultrasound creates detailed images of the structures inside your body using high-frequency sound waves. Since ultrasound doesn’t use harmful radiation, it’s safe during pregnancy.

 Feminine Urgicare does on-site ultrasound using a handheld device (transducer). The transducer sends the sound waves painlessly into your body, where they bounce off tissues and go back to the transducer. The transducer sends the data to a computer, which creates the images. 

What type of ultrasound will I need?

Your Feminine Urgicare provider may recommend one of two ultrasound techniques: 

Transabdominal ultrasound

Most ultrasounds are transabdominal, meaning your provider places ultrasound gel on your abdomen and then puts the transducer on top of the gel and against your skin. They gently press on the transducer and move it over your skin until they get the best image. 

Transvaginal ultrasound

During a transvaginal ultrasound, your provider uses a slender transducer created to go inside your vagina. This technique creates better images because the sound waves reach the tissues without traveling through your skin.

How is ultrasound used in obstetrics?

Ultrasound provides a detailed image of the uterus, placenta, and developing baby. You may have an ultrasound early in your pregnancy to verify the baby’s age, learn if you’re carrying more than one, and diagnose a potential ectopic pregnancy.

All pregnant women have an ultrasound in the second trimester to assess the baby’s growth and development. Sometimes (but not always), this ultrasound reveals the baby’s gender.

The Feminine Urgicare team frequently performs ultrasounds when women seek emergency pregnancy care for urgent prenatal concerns. You may also need an ultrasound image at any time during your pregnancy to evaluate the baby’s health. 

How is ultrasound used in gynecology?

Ultrasound is one of the most essential diagnostic tools for women’s health care, helping to uncover the cause of symptoms like abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, and irregular periods.

As specialists in women’s and reproductive health, the Feminine Urgicare team often uses ultrasound to diagnose gynecological problems, such as: 

  • Infertility
  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

The team also uses ultrasound for breast screening if you have symptoms like breast pain or discharge or they find a mass during a clinical breast exam.
