Transvaginal ultrasound

A transvaginal ultrasound is used to look at the pelvic organs in women. A thin probe called a transducer is covered with a lubricated sheath similar to a condom. The transducer is then gently put into the vagina. The transducer sound waves make a picture on a TV screen (monitor).
