Ultrasounds are an important tool in diagnosing medical problems and in monitoring pregnancies. We are very lucky to have a team of highly skilled ultrasonographers at Women First, with state-of-the-art ultrasound units conveniently located within our office.

Ultrasound can be used to diagnose and monitor gynecologic problems such as a pelvic mass, abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, or infertility. Pelvic ultrasound offers a quick visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures and can show the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries. A pelvic ultrasound may be done as an abdominal scan, as with most ultrasounds during pregnancy, or they may be a transvaginal ultrasound to allow for a better view of the uterus and ovaries. The type of ultrasound to be used will depend on which method will provide the information needed for diagnosis or treatment.

Transabdominal: A transducer is placed on the abdomen using conductive gel to scan through the abdomen.

Transvaginal: A long, wand transducer is covered by a plastic sheath, coated with conducting gel, and inserted into the vagina.

Gynecologic pelvic ultrasound can be used to evaluate:

  • The size, shape, and position of the uterus and ovaries
  • Thickness and length of the cervix
  • Changes in the shape of the bladder
  • Blood flow through pelvic organs
  • Thickness and presence of fluids or masses in the endometrium (lining of the uterus), myometrium (uterine muscle tissue), fallopian tubes, and ovaries, or in or near the bladder.

This imaging helps assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of gynecologic conditions, including:

  • Fibroid tumors (benign growths), masses, cysts, and other types of tumors within the pelvic region
  • Presence and position of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic masses—predominantly uterine and ovarian fibroids
  • Postmenopausal bleeding

Ultrasound may also assist in evaluation of infertility, as well as to discern ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy occurring outside of the uterus, usually in the fallopian tube).

I've been seeing Dr. Price for many years and have always had a great experience with her. Dr. Price has always listened to me and addressed all of my questions and concerns. My only complaint is with a former nurse I saw for medical issues who didn't further investigate them and it got progressively worse. Luckily the current nurse practitioner diagnosed me correctly and have received the correct treatment.

When I was looking for a gyno, Jeanette and Dr. Booth came highly recommended from family that see them and rightly so! Jeanette has the best bedside manner and takes the time to be thorough and understand the patient. When I had an issue outside of office hours, I was able to submit a question on the Follow My Health app and got a phone call in less than 30 minutes from the care team. They’re the best and I tell everyone about them!

I’ve been a patient at Women 1st for 16 years and cannot say enough about this practice. Every staff member is caring, friendly, and very good at what they do. The physicians & nurses are some of the best in the state of Kentucky, which is why I currently live in Georgetown and drive to Louisville to continue my care. Highly recommend Dr. Warren or Dr. Price!
