About 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.

She was kind, comforting, extremely knowledgeable & just all around the epitome of a truly great OB/GYN.I am so thankful that I found Dr Ivie & her wonderful staff :)"- W. / Healthgrades / Jun 08, 2019
"Awesome doctor. My other doctors recommended a hysterectomy for back trouble I was having, she examined me and discovered this was NOT the problem. She kept me from an unnecessary and painful surgery. Great doctor. When we discovered a REAL female problem I was having she did my surgery with care and confidence (even providing pictures). I recovered quickly and I would highly recommend her. Best doctor ever. Very caring and funny too. Her bedside manner puts you at ease and she inspires your confidence and trust in her."- G.O. / Google / Jun 06, 2019
Types of Ultrasounds
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Ultrasound Imaging Other Considerations
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.
