Coeur d'Alene Ultrasound - Women’s Imaging

Pelvic Sonogram

A pelvic ultrasound is a diagnostic examination of the female reproductive organs such as the uterus and ovaries. Pelvic sonograms are commonly ordered by practitioners due to complaints of pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or to evaluate a possible mass in the pelvis. A pelvic sonogram may help to determine if there are uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, or endometrial abnormalities in the pelvis. Pelvic sonograms are considered safe, painless, and are typically performed within 20 minutes. Exams may include a transabdominal and transvaginal sonogram to provide the most definitive information possible for your healthcare provider. Our physician’s report will be emailed through a secure link to your provider, generally within 24 hours.

Breast Sonogram

Breast ultrasound exams are ordered under certain circumstances to provide your practitioner with information regarding the health of your breasts. Ultrasound can aid your care provider in locating breast tumors and cysts as small as a few millimeters in size. Breast sonograms are commonly ordered after a mammogram has shown an inconclusive or questionable diagnosis. Since our radiologists are not located in our imaging suite, we do not currently offer breast ultrasound imaging for correlation to mammograms. However, ultrasound is also used for women younger than age 30 (when breast tissue is usually less compatible with mammography) or for women who are breast feeding to evaluate palpable masses or areas of tenderness. As such, we provide breast ultrasound exams under those two circumstances, as indicated by your practitioner. Breast sonograms are considered painless, safe, and are typically performed within 10-20 minutes. Our physician’s report will be emailed through a secure link to your provider, generally within 24 hours.
