There is no radiation used during the Ultrasound Pelvis test. Additionally, you won’t feel discomfort from using a transducer to your skin during the Transabdominal Ultrasound Pelvis test.
However, during the Transvaginal Ultrasound, the latex sheath over the transducer might cause skin irritation if you have a latex allergy.
During the Transabdominal Ultrasound, you may experience discomfort while lying on the examination table having a full bladder.
If you need a quick Transabdominal Ultrasound, a urinary catheter may be inserted to fill the bladder.
There may also be risks involved depending on your specific health condition. Make sure to discuss any concerns with the healthcare provider before the test commences.
