4. Transvaginal ultrasound and abdominal ultrasound

In Sants Gynecological clinic we provide you with the possibility to assess fetal growth and development during the first weeks of pregnancy by:

Transvaginal ultrasound:This is the type of ultrasound of choice for early diagnosis of pregnancy, given the proximity of the instrument (ultrasound probe) with internal gynecological structures. The internal genitalia and is defined more as you can pinpoint the location of intra or extra-uterine pregnancy. It requires no preparation to take place.

Abdominal ultrasound:is a type of ultrasound that allows us to visualize the internal genitalia through the abdomen using an ultrasound probe that facilitates the transmission of the image to a monitor.

If you want to make a diagnosis of pregnancy during the first trimester a good bladder filling (the woman an hour before drink one to two liters of water and come to the clinic without urinating for exploration) is required.

This type of ultrasound if carried out during the second and third quarter does not require any preparation.
