What to Expect from an Ultrasound

  • The examination usually takes less than 30 minutes.
  • The patient is positioned on an examination table and clear gel is applied to the abdomen or in the vagina. This improves conduction of sound waves and eliminates air between the transducer, a small plastic device that sends out sound waves and records them as they bounce back.

How to Prepare for an Ultrasound

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.

Types of Ultrasounds

Obstetrical
  • Standard Ultrasounds direct high-pitched sound waves toward the baby which bounces off tissues, organs, and bones in the mother’s body, including those of the baby in the uterus. This creates black and white images on a monitor.
  • Advanced or Targeted Ultrasounds are used to further investigate a suspected abnormality identified by a standard ultrasound.
  • Doppler Ultrasounds measure slight changes in the frequency of the ultrasound waves as they bounce off moving objects, such as blood cells.
Gynecological
  • A Transvaginal Ultrasound is a type of pelvic ultrasound used by doctors to examine female reproductive organs. This includes the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and the vagina.
  • An Abdominal Ultrasound is used to help your doctor visualize the organs and structures inside the abdomen. It is used to help diagnose pain or distention and evaluate the kidneys, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, and abdominal aorta.

What to Know Before Visiting a Gynecologist

If you are seeing a gynecologist that also practices obstetrics, such as Dr. Hammond, you have the benefit having the same doctor to provide care for your female health needs as well as during your pregnancy. 

Some great questions to ask your gynecologist include:

  1. What areas do you specialize in?
  2. How do I perform a proper breast self-examination
  3. Anything regarding abnormalities in your period
  4. What are my birth control options?
  5. Anything regarding STD testing

Call Colorado Obstetrics and Women’s Health to schedule an appointment with either Dr. Hammond or one of our nurse practitioners. We are located in Northern Colorado Springs and would love to have you as a patient!
