klinical

An early pregnancy scan is usually a transvaginal ultrasound and occasionally, a transabdominal ultrasound to view your womb, fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder and pelvis.

A transvaginal ultrasound scan provides a more detailed view of the location of the pregnancy and the developing embryo. A transvaginal ultrasound scan is inserted vaginally to provide clear images. It is comfortable and safe in pregnancy.
