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. The clinic at Lower North Shore (St Leonards) runs during normal office hours and Saturday mornings.

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
- problem periods
- bleeding after the menopause
- ovarian cysts
- ovarian cancer screening
- 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.
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 a copy of the report and any relevant images to the patient.
