What is Ultrasound Imaging?

With an in-depth view of your female reproductive organs with ultrasounds, our team at Essential Women's Health Associates can produce images from inside your body. Whether you need an ultrasound for pregnancy or diagnostic service, we conveniently have an ultrasound machine on-site for your appointment. Your ultrasound and sonogram are much more than just a picture of your pelvic area. For pregnant women, we are able to show you that there is a baby inside of you, determine how old, how long, and how healthy the fetus (or multiples) may be. It also allows your OBGYN to take a closer look at the shape and position of your cervix, the fetus, the placenta, and the amount of amniotic fluid surrounding your baby in your womb.

If you are having an ultrasound for diagnostic reasons, your OBGYN can have a unique view of your bladder, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and uterus. Some of the things we look for in a vaginal ultrasound for women are fibroids, cysts, polyps, scar tissues, and cancers. Call our office today to schedule an appointment for an ultrasound at our Las Vegas or Henderson, NV office.

What type of Ultrasound do I need?

Pelvic Ultrasound

In a pelvic ultrasound, the ultrasound tech will put the technology on your skin of the abdomen to see your female organs in the pelvic area. This is a noninvasive imaging session that is quick yet may not be in-depth enough for your diagnostic assessment.


Similar to the pelvic ultrasound, a transabdominal ultrasound will create images with a wider perspective of your female organs.

3D Ultrasound

Usually the best quality picture, the 3D ultrasound will give you much more detail than a sonogram. You may want to see what your baby looks like, but the 3D ultrasound can also be used to detect abnormalities in your female organs and some birth defects.

4D Ultrasound

If you would like to see your baby moving inside your womb or need to see movement in your uterus, then you may benefit from the 4D moving (video) ultrasound.

Doppler Ultrasound

If you need to see the size of your blood vessels or how the blood is flowing to your growing baby, we can use a Doppler ultrasound for this test.

Transvaginal Ultrasound

Transvaginal ultrasounds are produced by the technology with a transducer. The transducer is a wand-like device that has to be inserted into the vagina. Images can be taken within your body and examined closely for your treatment planning.

What to expect during an ultrasound

Family members can accompany you to a pregnancy checkup and ultrasound (as long as you are comfortable with someone else in the room). Your family is welcome at Essential Women's Health Associates to attend your appointments. We do ask that the number of visitors is limited in our office to keep your appointment time running on schedule. In addition, if you are having an ultrasound for a diagnostic test and wish for someone close to you to be with you, we can arrange that for you, too.

Ultrasound Imaging FAQ

Are there any preparations required for an ultrasound?
The preparation for an ultrasound test depends on the specific area of the body being examined. In some cases, you may be asked to fast for a certain period of time before the test. Our team at Essential Women's Health Associates in Las Vegas, NV will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for the ultrasound, such as avoiding eating or drinking prior to the test.

What are the common uses of ultrasound imaging?
Ultrasound imaging has a wide range of applications in medical diagnostics. It is commonly used to evaluate the abdomen, pelvis, heart, blood vessels, thyroid gland, breasts, and musculoskeletal system. It is also used during pregnancy to monitor the development and health of the fetus.

How long does an ultrasound test take?
The duration of an ultrasound can vary depending on the area being examined and the complexity of the case. Generally, an ultrasound exam can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. The procedure is typically painless and does not require any recovery time.
