Gynaecology Ultrasound

Gynaecological ultrasound at OMNI encompasses all aspects of women’s healthcare.

Non-pregnant women of all ages presenting with gynaecological problems can be seen at OMNI and offered high quality assessment of the pelvis. Gynaecological ultrasound has evolved rapidly and the use of high resolution transvaginal probes enables accurate evaluation of the uterus, ovaries, tubes and more recently the pelvic floor.

OMNI provides high quality imaging by the most experienced female sonographers as well as clinical fellows.

Whilst we provide diagnostic scanning services in gynaecology, our team is happy to see women for a consultation and arrange whatever follow up that may be necessary, including surgery if required, for:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Problem periods
  • Fibroids
  • Bleeding after the menopause
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Ovarian cancer screening
  • Subfertility
  • Retained products of conception (RPOC) after vaginal delivery or caesarean section

What does a gynaecological scan involve?

Initially you will be asked to give a brief outline of your problem, the day of your last menstrual period (if relevant) and whether you have had any significant gynaecological or other medical problems in the past.

Most gynaecological ultrasounds scans are performed vaginally – in other words it is an internal examination. This is the best way to see the organs of the pelvis and therefore exclude any abnormalities. The vaginal probe is about the size of a tampon, and for most women the examination is not uncomfortable. A further advantage for this approach is that the bladder does not need to be full, which makes both waiting and the examination more comfortable.

If a vaginal scan is inappropriate or not possible then a scan can be carried out abdominally. An abdominal scan requires a full bladder and we generally advise that you drink 1 to 2 litres of fluid about 90 minutes before the scan.

What does a gynaecological scan involve?

All our gynaecological scans are archived onto a reporting database. In general, a letter and/or fax is then sent back to your GP or referring Specialist. The letter will contain a detailed report of the scan findings and any other investigations carried out as well as prints of the images taken at the time of the scan. We are also happy to provide any relevant images to the patient.

OMNI Ultrasound & Gynaecological Care

Condous performs Advanced Endosurgery procedures for women needing intervention for pelvic masses, adnexal pathology, severe endometriosis or hysterectomy. He also runs ‘Hands on’ Live Sheep Laparoscopic Workshops for gynaecologists at Camden Veterinarian School.
Having completed an undergraduate degree with the University of Adelaide, he left Australia in 1993 and moved to London where he completed his training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. From 2001 to 2003 Condous worked as a Senior Research Fellow at St George’s Hospital, London. At St George’s he set up the Acute Gynaecology Unit, the first in the United Kingdom. It was also during this time that he developed an interest in Early Pregnancy and especially the management of pregnancies of unknown location (PULs). Condous has developed many mathematical models for the prediction of outcome of PULs which have been featured in numerous peer review journals. In 2005, he returned to Australia where he completed his Laparoscopic Fellowship at the Centre for Advanced Reproductive Endosurgery, Royal North Shore, Sydney.

Condous was appointed as a Consultant Gynaecologist and Senior Lecturer at Nepean Hospital in 2006 and soon was made Associate Professor. In 2010, he was made Departmental Head of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Nepean Hospital. He obtained the MRCOG in 1999 and was made FRANZCOG in 2005. In 2009, he was awarded his Doctorate in Medicine (MD), University of London, for his thesis entitled: “The management of pregnancies of unknown location and the development of new mathematical models to predict outcome”.

Condous has edited three books including the “Handbook of Early Pregnancy Care”, published over 100 papers in international journals and is internationally renowned for his work in Early Pregnancy. He is the Associate Editor for Gynaecologic Obstetric Investigation, which is a European based journal, as well as the Australasian Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine (AJUM). He is on the organising committee and is an invited speaker at the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISUOG) Scientific meeting in Sydney 2013. His current research interests relate to the management of ectopic pregnancy, 1st trimester growth, PULs and miscarriage and the use of transvaginal ultrasound (in particular sonovaginography, to predict posterior compartment deep infiltrating rectovaginal endometriosis).Condous is also actively involved with post-graduate education including the annual running of the Early Pregnancy and Gynaecological Ultrasound Interactive Courses for Sonologists, Radiologists, Sonographers and Gynaecologists in Australia.
