Dedicated to offering personalized care for all your ultrasound needs

OB/GYN Ultrasound

Women’s Health Care offers in-office obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound with a provider or licensed sonographer. In fact, the first in-office ultrasound in the Waukesha area was at Women’s Health Care. Our providers are able to offer immediate results because of the ability to perform ultrasounds right in our office. This allows us to correlate physical symptoms to findings on the ultrasound in real-time without lengthy and expensive visits to the hospital.

Women’s Health Care is an accredited practice with the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine which involves meeting rigorous criteria for quality imaging standards and patient safety.


What is an OB/GYN Ultrasound?

An obstetric or gynecologic ultrasound is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce an internal image of a woman’s reproductive organs including the uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix and ovaries.
Most women are familiar with the obstetric application of ultrasound to confirm and evaluate a pregnancy. Ultrasound images are often the first time a family gets a glimpse of their new baby and these images are treasured for years to come! Ultrasound can also be used in gynecology to evaluate certain symptoms including pelvic pain, heavy menstrual cycles, painful intercourse and more. In addition, pelvic ultrasound is commonly used in monitoring infertility cycles.

Ultrasound probes come in several different shapes and sizes. Some transducers are used on the skin of a woman’s abdomen, while others are placed inside the vagina (transvaginal ultrasound). Getting the transducer close to the cervix, uterus and ovaries allows for more detailed images.



Women’s Health Care physicians are skilled in performing sonohysterography for a more detailed view of the inside of the uterus. Sonohysterography is also referred to as saline infusion sonography, or SIS. Sonohystogram images can help in diagnosing problems related to irregular bleeding, infertility, or recurrent miscarriages. Though the process is more involved than a traditional 3D ultrasound, it provides more detailed results.

This procedure is done in the office and usually takes about 15 minutes. Like a pelvic exam, a speculum is used to visualize the cervix. A small catheter (thin tube) is inserted through the cervix into the uterus. The speculum is then removed and the vaginal ultrasound probe is placed into the vagina. Sterile saline is gently injected through the catheter to outline the uterine cavity.

You may experience mild cramping during the insertion of saline into the uterus. Once the exam is finished, your physician will be able to provide you with results in real-time.
