TRI-DIMENSIONAL Pelvic-Floor Ultrasound

TRI-DIMENSIONAL Pelvic-Floor Ultrasound

Posted by on 17 August 2016 | Comments

This specialised ultrasound scan assesses the pelvic floor of women.

 Along with the recent advances and success of treatment of pelvic floor disorders there has been increasing demand for this scan.

TRG Imaging offers Tri-dimensional Pelvic Floor Ultrasound at our Shakespeare Road practice in Milford. This scan is particularly useful in assessing pelvic floor disorders such as:

• urinary or faecal incontinence
• recurrent urinary tract infection
• symptoms of obstructed defaecation
• selected cases of pelvic, vaginal or anal pain
• pelvic organ prolapse

When the scan is performed, the pelvic floor is assessed for dysfunction as well as levator ani (muscle) defects as a cause for the symptoms.
The assessment is dynamic and provides you with direct feedback as the scan is being performed. The scan is multicompartmental using a combination of
transabdominal, transvaginal and perineal ultrasound. It takes approximately one hour to perform this complex ultrasound examination. Our team are
trained to make you feel at ease throughout each stage of the assessment.

If you feel this assessment will be useful, we suggest you discuss this with your doctor or specialist first.
