Can ultrasound detect vaginal disease?

1 Answer:

Hi Monita,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Ultrasound (ultrasonography) is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves. This procedure is performed using a device called a transducer, which is attached to the body to emit high-frequency sound waves. Furthermore, this sound reflection will form an image in the form of size, shape, and consistency of the organ concerned. These waves then form an image on a computer screen.


Ultrasound can be done for various indications, including to evaluate the condition of the reproductive organs in women, such as the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and so on.


Some of the abnormalities in the vagina can be detected on ultrasound examination, usually through a transvaginal ultrasound. Some examples are in patients who experience abnormal bleeding or pain in the vagina, such as those caused by endometriosis cysts. However, even though complaints are felt around the vagina, it is not necessarily the cause purely from abnormalities in the vagina. Abnormalities can also come from other organs, but cause symptoms to the vagina.


However, for certain types of diseases, such as those related to infection or tumors, additional examinations other than ultrasound are required, such as urine tests, blood tests, pap smears, or biopsies to determine the correct diagnosis and treatment.


Therefore, it is necessary to clarify what vaginal disease you mean. We recommend that you consult directly with a gynecologist, yes.


I hope this helps.
