Below the belt: what the latest ultrasound technology can tell you
OMNI Ultrasound & Gynaecological Care in Sydney offers women the best in ultrasound care to provide a clear and accurate diagnosis
Often the reassurance that nothing is out of the ordinary is what many women are looking for. This is especially true of young couples who are newly pregnant. The excitement and joy of finding out you’re pregnant can be tempered by the uncertainty of what happens next. By visiting our team we can answer your questions and provide you with accurate testing to determine the health and well-being of your baby.
We also offer ultrasounds to diagnose the source of pelvic pain, tubal patency, endometriosis and chromosomal abnormalities in unborn children.
At our Sydney ultrasound centres, which are dedicated to women’s ultrasound, pregnancy and gynaecological care, we provide ultrasound services for all stages of pregnancy
Vaginal bleeding is very common in the first trimester of pregnancy, occurring in around 30% of pregnancies. However, it is important to note that not all women who bleed in the first month are miscarrying. In the same breath unexplained bleeding can be cause of uncertainty and great anxiety for expecting parents.
At OMNI Ultrasound we provide transvaginal ultrasound or an internal ultrasound scan. These are some of the best methods for finding out what is happening with your pregnancy. Because this bleeding can occur without warning we will always try to see you the same day.
Occasionally, mild cramping, backache or period-like pain may also be present, and if this is the case an internal ultrasound will be able to determine the viability of your pregnancy. In case there’s any doubt about the viability of a pregnancy on scan, we will recommend an interval scan in 7 to 14 days.
Early pregnancy and giving you peace of mind
At OMNI we use a highly sensitive internal probe to perform the early pregnancy scan.
We also offer reassurance scans for women with uncontrollable vomiting in the 1st trimester. This is because, although pregnancy and nausea are common during the 1st trimester, it can sometimes be indicative of hyperemesis gravidarum. This is persistent pregnancy-induced vomiting that occurs during the first 12-14 weeks of pregnancy.
If you do have severe hyperemesis gravidarum hospitalisation may be required to ensure persistent vomiting is controlled. It should be noted that hyperemesis gravidarum—even with hospitalisation—is rare after the first trimester.
OMNI uses the latest ultrasound technology to provide patients with high quality imaging for you and your referring specialist. If you are exhibiting any symptoms that warrant an ultrasound we do offer same day scanning.
