This test uses sound waves to create detailed images of the organs in the lower abdomen or pelvic area.



A pelvic ultrasound uses sound waves to create detailed images of the organs in the lower abdomen or pelvic area, such as the ovaries, bladder or prostate gland. Your healthcare provider may order this test to explore abnormal bleeding, menstrual problems, prostate problems, pain in the lower abdomen or other problems.

To get the best results, you may be asked to fast for several hours before the test.

  • You may be asked to drink water before the test. Having a full bladder can help make the pelvic organs more visible.
  • Depending on the organs being examined, the probe may be placed on your abdomen or inserted into your vagina or rectum.
  • The test usually takes about 30 minutes.
  • The costs for this test include the charge for the test (facility charge) and physician charges (for performing or interpreting the test). You may get separate bills from the facility and the physician's office.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • Why are you ordering this test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, why do I need the test?
