Introduction to ultrasound examinations

Ultrasound examinations are one of the most basic and important methods in gynaecological diagnostics. They allow us to get a detailed picture of the internal female reproductive system, including the uterus, ovaries and breast tissues. This is a non-invasive, painless and safe method for assessing your gynaecological health and for the early detection of various diseases.

Procedure of an ultrasound examination

An ultrasound examination uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of your internal organs. During the examination, you lie on an examination couch and a gel is applied to the skin to improve contact between the ultrasound probe and the skin. The ultrasound probe is then moved over the relevant area to produce images that are displayed on a screen. The examination usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes and does not cause any pain.

Importance of ultrasound examinations

Ultrasound examinations play a crucial role in gynaecological practice. They help us monitor your gynaecological health, detect any irregularities or signs of disease early and follow the progress of treatments. In addition, they are an important tool in pregnancy monitoring to track the baby's development and growth.
